Traditional Norfolk Poultry, Shropham, Norfolk
Traditional Norfolk Poultry grows and processes free range and organic chickens and turkeys to RSPCA standards in unspoilt East Anglian countryside – while our purpose-designed processing centre, also RSPCA approved, guarantees our birds continue to receive the utmost care.
At every stage their welfare is of paramount importance. This is why we endeavour to create an environment in which our birds feel comfortable to range and explore freely – even providing shelter shades and cover strips to ensure a natural lifestyle.
Close attention to our poultry’s environmental welfare, and the fact they receive a nutritious GM-free, cereal based diet – supplemented with the insects, bugs and berries they find while foraging – is reflected in their superior taste and quality.
Founded in 1988, in recent years TNP has grown rapidly to meet the demands of an increasingly discerning customer; people who carefully consider where their poultry comes from, how it is grown and cared for – including the various types of farming systems used – and the way it is dispatched and processed.
All customers catered for – big and small
Among our many UK customers are supermarkets, large and small retailers, wholesalers, hotel and restaurant chains and local authorities. We are also able to export to many countries, and supply prestige events.
TNP produces free range chicken and turkey products of many kinds and is big enough to offer supermarkets everything they require to service their needs – from product development, market research and technical resources to account management.
At the same time, the company is small enough to be flexible, and continuously considers and introduces innovative products and ideas. (For example, we were first to market with rare breed turkeys, and the first company to grow poultry in mobile housing at a commercial level).
When it comes to free range and organic chicken and turkey production, TNP is in a class of its own – represented by our recent investment in a new, state-of-the-art processing centre, the staff’s drive and dedication to making things better, and the forward-thinking that helps keep our customers ahead of the market.
Not surprisingly, our latest expansion plans are already well advanced.
All TNP poultry is RSPCA approved. As the RSPCA’s farm assurance and labelling scheme is the UK’s only scheme of its type to focus on improving the welfare of animals reared for food.
The Red Tractor scheme, of which TNP is proud to be a member, provides consumers and retailers with confidence about product quality, including food safety, animal welfare and environmental protection.
TNP is a member of Organic Farmers & Growers, which monitors all our organic poultry production. OF&G, a leading UK organic control body, is accredited by Defra.
TNP works in conjunction with the Woodland Trust in creating new areas of woodland habitat. To date we have planted over 5,000 mixed species of trees across our farms.
