Tallow is for the Birds: Coast Packing Co. Urges Consumers to Shuffle Off to National Chicken Wing Day, Sunday, July 29. 2018

July 29, 2018

Consumed in the Billions Annually, Buffalo Creation is a Natural for Beef Tallow

As a fitting follow-up to the first #NationalBeefTallowDay, Coast Packing Company, the West’s largest supplier of healthy animal fat shortenings, is lending its enthusiastic support to National Chicken Wing Day – Sunday, July 29 – and urging consumers to sample what’s been called “the most versatile protein on the planet.”

Since its inception in 1964 at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, N.Y., the chicken wing has become a national staple. Americans consume nearly 30 billion wings annually – about 1.3 billion on Super Bowl weekend alone. At an average rate of 24 wings per month – 290 wings a year — that translates to 18,000 chicken wings over a typical lifespan.
