Episode 3: Healthy chicken business 

The chicken business is booming. Today, in the US, the largest chicken producer slaughters as many as 35 million birds a week to keep up with demand. You might think that the poultry business has never had it so good. But over the past few years, consumers have started to demand chicken reared without antibiotics. Worried that antibiotic-free farming will harm the birds and lower profits, US poultry farmers are turning to Danish innovation for a solution.
