Keeping Our Focus on Consumer Needs

What kind of meals do busy people want? Three words: quick, easy and delicious. In 2003, we applied this modern mantra to our product line and introduced Foster Farms Fresh & Easy, individually-wrapped, pre-washed boneless, skinless breasts and thighs. We wanted to make it as easy as possible for people to enjoy a healthy meal without compromising quality. Today, Fresh & Easy is one of our most popular items.
