TNP’s new processing centre – RSPCA assured

TNP’s care and consideration for the welfare of its chickens and turkeys continues to the end of their lives – which is one reason the company has invested heavily in a new, purpose-built processing centre.

TNP’s recently extended 75,000 square-foot facility, which meets all RSPCA assurance standards, ensures its birds are treated as kindly as possible.

To this end, procedures are tightly controlled: CCTV cameras monitor all areas where the birds are handled, staff are continuously monitored, and an independent vet is on hand to safeguard the birds’ welfare.

In addition, our recent investment in a state-of-the-art controlled atmosphere stunning system and bird resting area ensures the very highest welfare possible.

In fact, no aspect of our birds’ welfare is overlooked or left to chance.

BRC accredited

TNP’s modern processing centre is not only RSPCA assured and Organic Farmers & Growers approved, but is also part of the Red Tractor Farm Assurance Poultry Scheme.

Moreover, as one of today’s most advanced specialist-poultry processing facilities, it benefits from British Retail Consortium (BRC) accreditation.

Flexible system meets customers’ needs

TNP operates a highly flexible system. Our processing lines handle everything from 1.2kg chickens to 15kg stag turkeys, and we have the capacity to tailor our poultry products to match customers’ exact requirements.

Our packing lines offer MAP (modified air packaging) tray wrapping; leak-proof, whole-bird wrapping; and bulk gas flush or vacuum packing. We pack under customers’ own labels or brands – as well as our own – and our three-dimensional bar-coding system facilitates a 100% pick-to-order operation.

In line with our green ethos, we use environmentally friendly packaging and are constantly seeking new ways to reduce our environmental impact and encourage recycling. As a result, we are constantly evaluating new, innovative methods and materials.

All TNP’s processing systems have been specifically designed to accommodate the wide variety of breeds – and their many shapes and sizes – associated with specialist-poultry production. In addition, our process areas are temperature controlled and automatically monitored to maintain product integrity throughout the supply chain.

This sophisticated operation, supported by our skilled technical team, is fully computerised – from quality control to system checks and analysis – to ensure on-time delivery and complete customer satisfaction.

Well trained staff

TNP operates a programme of continuous staff development, encouraging all members of its team to undergo training and seek advancement. Our proactive HR department works closely with our colleagues, offering support, training and always driving standards forwards.
