Cargill Meats Europe

Cargill’s European Poultry business is a leading supplier and innovator of primary and further processed chicken products for retail, food service and food manufacturing customers.

The business has processing facilities in the UK, France and Russia, as well as a sales division based in the Netherlands and employs over 2800 people across Europe.

Through a network of six primary and further processing facilities, Cargill produces a range of products including tray packed fresh chicken and chicken portions, BBQ chicken products, rotisserie and marinated chicken and coated chicken products.

In addition to the processing capabilities in Europe, Cargill is also one of the largest importers of fresh frozen chicken products from Thailand and Brazil for the European food manufacturing and retail market. Through relationships with our suppliers and partners, and our operations in Thailand, we manage the traceability, quality, supply chain, risk management and technical needs of our customers.

Through its strong focus on new product innovation the business builds upon existing customer relationships as well as entering new markets in order to meet Cargill’s aspirations for growth.

Offering customers a choice of products to meet their needs has always been central to Cargill’s success, and today this is no less important. Cargill places high emphasis on innovation and product development and keeps abreast of market trends. This highly customer-focused approach helps Cargill to develop strong relationships with its customers by delivering market insight into how consumers think – to keep ahead of the rapidly changing retail and food service landscape.

Cargill’s European poultry business is committed to conducting all aspects of our business with absolute integrity and providing safe, nutritious and affordable chicken. For us, sustainability is building responsible and sustainable supply chains from farm to fork. We will do this by minimising the environmental and social impacts of our operations and supply chains, respecting the animals in our care and improving welfare standards, as well as enriching our communities where we operate.
