All Morrisons-label Fresh Chicken in 100% British. We work through a small number of UK processors to deliver fresh chicken which is produced to some of the highest welfare standards in the world.
Poultry meat is a fast growing market and our poultry farmers are some of the most efficient, sustainable and welfare conscious in any sector. Many farms have installed biomass heating systems to turn chicken manure into heat, while all actively monitor an number of key welfare indicators.
In 2011 we were the first major supermarket to introduce natural lighting into all our chicken units following research into chicken behaviour with the University of Bristol. This means that all Morrisons chicken , not just our Free Range and Organic products, benefit from some of the highest welfare standards found anywhere.
Each processor works with a number of local farmers in their particular region of the UK, typically 30 to 40 specialist poultry rearing farms. We work closely with these farmers through our Producer Groups. Click on the link to find out more.
As you would expect from Morrisons, all our farm are audited to Red Tractor standards.
We care about the eggs we sell, the farm they came from and how the hens that lay them are looked after. That’s why 100% of our eggs, from our Savers range all the way through to our Forest Farm packs, are produced on British farms certified to British Lion Quality Standards laid down by the Egg Industry Council.
Our Nature’s Nest range are produced by chickens produced to Free Range standards but with the addition of native tree species to the range. Our Nature’s Nest farmers have planted over quarter of a million young trees between them, and when you add together our Forest Farm and Free Range hens, they are free to range over more than 2,500 acres of the British countryside.
We work with a small number of egg packing companies around the UK, from Aberdeenshire down to Kent. Many are family owned businesses, and all work closely with groups of local farmers in their local area. As with our broiler producers, we work with the farmers direct through our Producer Groups.
