What Chickens Eat
The main ingredient of all chicken feed is grain and grain by-products, protein-producing seeds, and meal made from seeds such as canola or soybean. In this sense all our chicken are Grain Fed.. Vitamins, minerals and other protein sources are added to improve the nutritional content of the feed as well as to prevent nutritional deficiencies. Its important to note that there are no hormones in chicken feed. In Canada, the use of hormones and steroids in chicken feed has been banned since the 1960s.
How They Are Raised
The chickens are not kept in cages, but roam freely on floors covered with soft, dry bedding. They are kept in climate-controlled barns to protect against the heat in summer, the cold in winter, as well as predators and disease. The result is tasty, more flavourful and nutritionally superior chicken with less fat than regular chicken. It also provides juicy, tender, meat quality (no shrinkage during cooking) and health benefits for you and your family.
An absolute favourite with customers is our boneless, skinless chicken breast. You just can’t beat the combination of succulent taste, texture and juiciness that comes with every breast Another very popular item is our white meat chicken fingers and nuggets. One bite and you’ll say good-bye to fast food chicken forever. Eating healthy sure does taste great
I would just like to say how much we have been enjoying getting Canadian Home Grocer’s products. We have found their meats to be excellent quality and portion size. We have ordered beef, pork, chicken and fish and have enjoyed all. I found the ground beef from the grocery store to be not as lean, and generally not quite as good quality. CHG’s roast are all good cuts and cook up well. The convenience of just going to the freezer as opposed to the grocery is fantastic.
As well as the quality of the products, I would like to say that any of the staff we have dealt with at CHG have been friendly, helpful, and always great at answering questions. Their deliveries have always been when expected and the orders complete and no problems.
We have been customers of Canadian Home Grocers since 2003 and with kids in the house; it has been a great service for our family. Our boys have grown through their teenage years and we went through a lot of food in that time!
The food is great quality as is the customer service and very convenient for a busy family. Thank you CHG!
Barbara & I have been purchasing our food from Canadian home grocers for a year now. We especially like the value, quality & taste of the meat (flash frozen) and that it comes from local sources wherever possible. We also appreciate that CHG can cater to the customer and split up food orders depending on the freezer space available. The cleaners also work very well such as the iron cleanser. And finally we like to support a local business.
Ordering with CHG has been a complete delight from beginning to end. From dealing with the initial sales person who came to our house, to the customer service staff who answered my many questions to the kind and polite man who delivered our orders, we’re completely satisfied with our decision to order with Canadian Home Grocers.
What’s even better than their staff, is their meat! In the last years, not once have we been disappointed with their products. The packaging is always air-tight, the meat stays fresh for months on end and we love the individual size packaging.
In addition, all their re-order promotional packages and referral programs are excellent – we take as much advantage of them as possible. Thank you CHG for making my life easier!
Purchasing groceries through Canadian Home Grocers means that there is always food in the house – especially meat in the freezer. It cuts my shopping time in half and saves trips to the grocery store. In addition, the staff is always pleasant and accommodating. I would recommend the service to anyone who would rather do anything but walk the aisles of a grocery store!
Thank you to everyone at Canadian Home Grocers for the great service that we have received over the years. Always friendly staff ready to serve you the way the customer wants to be served. Delivery is always on time, orders are always bang on and quality of the food is second to none at a price that is affordable.
Keep up the great work.
