“Shopping Corner: Empire Kosher’s 3-pound microwavable whole chicken,” NorthJersey.com, December 25, 2011
Whole, marinated, 3-pound kosher chicken from Empire Kosher can be cooked in its bag in the microwave. Chickens raised free-roaming, vegetarian-fed and without antibiotics. Results were surprisingly tasty and juicy.
Empire Kosher Poultry of central Pennsylvania sponsored the kosher meal, which consisted of fresh-tasting salads and dips, couscous, organic chicken and an apple dessert. Chief executive officer Greg Rosenbaum was proud to participate: “We support local farmers and workers’ rights. We are the world’s largest producer of kosher chickens and turkeys,” he told me as we waited on the buffet line. Empire also donates 50,000 pounds of poultry to food banks and kitchens each year.
