Our Story

True to the core

In 1958, Jamaicans would raise chickens in their backyards and sell live birds to neighbours, family and friends. The idea of buying a chicken that was already plucked and cleaned—‘dressed’ and ready for seasoning—was unheard of.

Sydney Levy’s dream was to change all that and provide the convenience of dressed chickens to all Jamaican households.

The idea soon caught on and Jamaicans began to request the succulent, tasty and economical ‘dressed’ chicken by name, giving birth to ‘The Best Dressed Chicken’ in town!

Today, The Best Dressed Chicken family of products comprises world-class brands with a longstanding reputation of quality:
