The stories behind our trusted suppliers

At Chick-fil-A, we know our customers trust us to be responsible and transparent about how we source our ingredients. We don’t take that trust lightly, and that’s why we carefully select each one of our suppliers. We partner only with companies that we can fully depend on to provide the highest-quality ingredients for our menu, and to follow our ingredient standards.

From apples to Broccolini®, we’ve shared the stories of our suppliers here on The Chicken Wire, to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the strong partnerships we’ve built over the years – partnerships that help make the food and drinks you enjoy at our restaurants the absolute best they can be.
