General Policies Applicable to Poultry

Avian Flu

Mitchells & Butlers prohibit the use of poultry from poultry farms where birds are suspected of having contracted Avian Flu and have been placed under quarantine by the local government.

Relevant licenses must be obtained from Government appointed veterinary surgeons to allow birds from farms within the protection and surveillance zones around infected farms to move direct to slaughter, before the poultry meat can be used within our business.


Mitchells & Butlers are working with all their poultry suppliers to manage and reduce the levels of Campylobacter present in raw chicken. This forms a combination of actions including increased biosecurity on farm and processing interventions.
