The Voice of the British Poultry Meat Industry

The British Poultry Council is the trade association for those involved in the production of poultry meat – chicken, turkey, duck, and goose – in the UK. Our member businesses account for nearly 90% of the production in this country and cover the whole food chain: breeding, hatching, growing, slaughter, processing, and packing. We’ve been the voice of the industry since 1967.

British poultry meat sector is feeding the nation with safe, wholesome, and nutritious food. From two and a half thousand farms across the UK, our skilled and dedicated farmers grow nearly a billion birds every year to standards that are among the best in the world.

Facing Brexit, British food and confidence in British food producers is more important than ever. BPC members, who do not receive subsidy through the Common Agricultural Policy, are committed to producing safe, wholesome, and nutritious food for Britain.
