Our Ethics

The key-manufacturing objective is the achievement of consistent quality, with the production of safe, legal and wholesome food. These aims will be achieved by concentrating on controlling the process, rather than the product, looking to get it right first time. The policy endorses the use of a quality management system, which is based on quality assurance and utilizes the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point technique.

 

We will invest in human resources, seeking to constantly improve the quality of our standards of recruitment and motivation of existing employees. We will establish training needs, particularly with respect to continual quality improvement and commit the necessary resources to fulfil these needs for all personnel. 

We are one of the UK’s independent poultry processing companies, which produce a wide range of chicken products for the food service market.

 

We strive to establish strong partnerships with our farmers, suppliers, customers and consumers, delivering at all times to our commitment on quality.

 

Our core purpose is “to provide consumers with high quality exciting foods that they can trust.” By building on our integrity of production, and the traceability of our products we can ensure that our consumers receive products of the highest quality.
