To ensure the quality of our products, we are an early adopter of new technology and innovation.

In 2012 we commissioned a new primary processing facility, including Aeroscalding – a process that uses less water and results in a much lower microbiological load. We were also among the first to implement Air Chilling – a process to which we are strongly committed. This results in better quality chicken and a longer shelf life. We are still the only processor using Aeroscolding in the southern hemisphere.

Our commitment to quality is also reflected in our farming practices as we believe that well raised chicken tastes better. Our birds live stress-free on clean, well maintained farms, are fed a premium quality multigrain diet, have space to move around naturally, dust-bathe and forage.

RSPCA Approved Chicken

We are proud to have been one of the early adopters of the RSPCA Approved higher-welfare standards for meat chickens.

To achieve RSPCA Approved certification, all of our farms adhere to over 300 requirements and are assessed 2-4 times per year to ensure the standards are consistently met – ultimately leading to better welfare.

Free Range Chicken

The RSPCA Approved Standard for meat chickens covers both barn raised and free range rearing of meat chickens.

Our commitment to free range farming has helped us to provide Australians with quality, great tasting chicken.

Once fully feathered, during daylight hours, chickens reared on our free range farms have access to secure well-fenced areas with trees and shade. At night, and during extreme weather conditions, they are housed in barns to keep them warm, comfortable and safe from predators.
