Product Information

Are our chickens hormone free?

Yes. In alignment with Federal & Industry regulations, hormones, steroids, growth enhancers have NOT been used in the growing & breeding of chickens for 40 years.

Sourcing our chicken from one of Australia’s most revolutionary processing plants in Thomastown Victoria, is La Ionica, a household name when it comes to chicken.

Why we choose La Ionica.

You’ll never forget the taste of a La Ionica chicken. The old fashioned taste of natural, healthy chicken turns every dish into a mouth-watering experience. Grill it, bake it, BBQ it, poach it or stir fry it.

La Ionica chicken are healthy and tender with the meat retaining its natural juices and flavour. The way chicken should be.

You probably want to know why our chicken is so tender, succulent and processed chemical free. La Ionica chicken’s unique taste and quality is due to the innovative process we use for every bird. Using the premium European method of “air chilling”, a process which does not involve the use of traditional spin–chillers filled with ice water and chlorine, all La Ionica chickens travel along a refrigeration line where they are chilled with cool, natural air until their deep muscle temperature is 0 degrees Celsius.

Where the spin-chiller process alters appearance, texture and taste, our air-chilling process is what ensures all La Ionica chickens maintain their healthy pink appearance, great natural texture and flavour, giving you “the real taste of chicken”.

We also source our produce from Golden Cockrell in QLD and Inghams. Click on the below links for further information on these suppliers.
