As a chef you have the power to change food. Your buying decisions not only help shape the way that food is produced, but encourage  your customers to do the same. Your voice is one that policy makers increasingly listen to.

Antibiotic misuse in meat is a serious issue. In fall 2013, the Centers for Disease Control described most antibiotic use on industrial farms as “unnecessary and inappropriate,” linking sub-therapeutic antibiotic use in meat production to human deaths because of antibiotic resistance.

It’s time to stop using antibiotics to boost meat production! We are working with The Pew Charitable Trusts to take action on this issue in 2014. As a chef, here are 3 easy things you can do right now:

  1. Learn about antibiotics misuse in animal production by reading this fact sheet (see below for more recommended reading)
  2. Learn about the history of antibiotics here in the US by listening to our podcast with Tom Philpott of Mother Jones and Laura Rogers of Pew Charitable Trusts coming soon for members only! Click here to become a member, and get access.
