When it comes to chicken, we’re confident we know a thing or two about the world’s most popular type of poultry.

As wholesale poultry suppliers, Our farms are located in the traditional poultry-rearing lands of East Anglia where the poultry production farms we use are totally unique in being the only integrated producer of British Farm Assured Chicken in the UK. 

What does this actually mean? Our suppliers control a sustainable and ethical chain from breeding, egg production, hatchery, farms through to processing.  We can guarantee the provenance and welfare of our chickens as we know that our farm’s chickens are produced in houses that have an enriched and natural environment.

Our website provides a lot of information about our meat and poultry products, our suppliers, provenance and accreditation.  Click here for more details.

Why is this information important? Well, we believe that whether you’re buying a simple chicken breast for your weekly shop, planning to cook a hearty roast chicken Sunday lunch with the family or you work in the hospitality industry and buy in bulk, the quality of the meat is paramount.

If you buy from Smithfield market meat suppliers on a regular basis, then quality and taste of the poultry is obviously top of your shopping list. But for those who don’t shop at Smithfields (yet!), we can only recommend heading down to your local London meat and poultry butcher.  Ask your butcher about the provenance of the meat / poultry before you buy. The cost may be slightly more expensive than your local supermarket but you won’t look back. Our mantra is always buy the best you can afford.

So now that we’ve told you a bit about us, here’s our top picks for quick and easy chicken meals. All the meals have come from BBC Good Food online and we’ve included a link to the recipe online. Enjoy!
