Restaurants Brands International, the owner of Burger King, has committed to use chicken that are reared without antibiotics for stores located in the U.S. and Canada.

The company will make the move in the U.S. stores this year followed by Canada in 2018.

Burger King opened its first outlet at The Hub mall in Karen in November last year and is set to open more stores countrywide later in the year, Business Daily Africa reports.

The new fast food restaurant is being operated through a franchise agreement with NAS Airport Services Limited, a subsidiary of French-based careering firm Servair.

“These Restaurants Brands International commitments relate exclusively to the markets of the U.S. and Canada. Kenya is not concerned,” said Servair communications officer Samuel Coulon in a response to Business Daily queries.
