Our Controlled Vacuum Packed (CVP) packaging offers the foodservice operator many advantages. Unlike ice packed chicken, which only has a five to seven day shelf life, CVP guarantees a 14-day shelf life on fresh chicken, which decreases the chance of spoiling. Also fresh CVP chicken is packed 16 head per case versus 28-36 in an average ice pack. By maximizing your chicken storage and shelf life and minimizing waste you can produce higher profits in this menu category.
We offer many moist, flavorful, and high-quality value-added options through our Silverbrook brand. Our ready to cook and fully cooked chicken breasts, tenderloins, and wings will save you time, assist with portion control, reduce waste, and help you achieve consistent flavor profiles in every dish.
Halal meat is slaughtered and processed under rules similar to other religiously certified meats, which includes prayer; quick, humane slaughter; and draining of blood. Silverbrook offers certified halal chicken products that follow Islamic “Halal Zabiah” rules.

This allows us to stay current to market for pricing and rotate/turn inventory quickly to ensure optimal freshness and shelf life for our customers. We work with numerous suppliers providing alternative options for product availability, and we have superior sourcing capabilities through valued relationships with local and national suppliers. We also help our customer’s optimize shelf life and maximize freshness by delivering product from suppliers directly to our warehouse.
