What Would Colonel Sanders Think?
Yes, I am talking about KFC, or Kentucky Fried Chicken, as us old folks remember it by.  We grew up with Kentucky Fried Chicken being represented by Colonel Harlan Sanders - the white haired, white suited founder and spokesman.  
Last week, the KFC Corporation announced that by 2018 all their chickens would be grown without antibiotics.  Now mind you-I am a proponent of raising chicken without antibiotics and Rogers Poultry has already switched a large part of our production to ABF (antibiotic free) birds.  But let me assure you that it does not enhance the flavor in any way. The question is-- is it healthier?  We will...   

JOEY Woodland Hills
Remember when you were a kid and your parents would say if you're going to do something "Do it right the first time" and "Hard work always pays off!" Well, Founder and CEO of JOEY Restaurants, Jeff Fuller, was listening closely when his parents gave this advice. Today, thanks to that advice, Jeff has created an incredibly successful "premium casual" dining concept called JOEY Restaurants with 37 restaurant locations across Canada, Washington and California.  
In 1992, the very first JOEY restaurant was opened in Canada.

And, once he was ready he took all that knowledge, and his naturally born entrepreneurial spirit, and ventured out on his own journey with the start of JOEY, which has become a remarkable success.
Today, with more than three dozen restaurants (and growing) spanning two countries, you might wonder what the JOEY formula for success is. I would venture to say that it has a great deal to do with...
America's Bacon Reserves Are at a '50-Year Low'


American democracy is probably crumbling, and now comes more terrible news that threatens to undermine faith in our country's institutions. The United States' bacon reserves are at their lowest levels in half a century. The nonprofit Ohio Pork Council reports that demand for frozen pork belly is outpacing supply, as farmers can't keep up with the demands despite, in the worlds of the organization's president Rich Deaton, raising "more pigs than ever."

The good news: There's still a lot of frozen pork belly left in the coffers - 17.8 million pounds to be exact, as of December 2016 - so America won't run out of bacon yet, but the bacon blues will cause
