Why Better Meat

By prioritizing meat and poultry raised without routine, non-therapeutics antibiotics, hospitals can move the food system in a more sustainable direction. Purchasing better meats helps to preserve the efficacy of antibiotics that are important for human medicine and protects human health by:

  • Preserving the use of all antibiotics for the therapeutic use of diagnosed disease;
  • Protecting the health of farmworkers and their families exposed to resistant bacteria on the farm;
  • Reducing the amount and exposure to antibiotic resistant bacteria on raw meat and poultry in the marketplace; and finally
  • Encouraging producers to alter productions systems to address crowding and sanitation so they no longer require these drug inputs.
