About the Supplier:
Label Anglais was born in 2001 and started by Chris Fredericks, a traditional turkey farmer from Essex. His aim was to reproduce a British version of the French Label Rouge chicken, a very high welfare, 80 day reared, corn fed chicken, which, wherever it may have been reared in France, would always have been farmed to the same standards. The small group of farmers that started Label rouge in 1965 with a shared passion for welfare and quality famously scribbled down the welfare standards on the back of a restaurant menu, a copy of which exists today. These standards are now set in history and adhered to by every Label Rouge producer across France
The birds are grown in small groups, with free access to large grassy areas and banks where they feed on 100% plant based diet free from artificial sugars, supplemented with pea protein. At 7 weeks apple is added to their diet for enrichment. They have unlimited outdoor space, with shaded areas and dust bowls for scratching. Such impeccably reared chicken is the only way to get such incredible taste.
