Requirements for poultry processing and selling
« on: January 18, 2018, 03:33:01 pm »
Small producers (i.e. if you produce less than 10k chickens a year) are allowed to slaughter and process their birds on farm. Do you know what requirements/regulations do you have to comply with to actually be able to legally sell your chickens to customers? Let's say we process around 2000 a year, I assume you need a clean and certified slaughter equipment. Do they have regulations for, for example, size of room, table?
What else should I check???
Growing loads of fruits and vegetables! Raising dairy goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits on 1/2 acre in the middle of the city of Leicester, using permaculture methods.

I think you need to register with your local health and safety office.

there is quite a bit of information on the food.gov.uk site when I last researched it.

You need to make sure you keep track (dates, batch numbers, source etc) of the feed you use for traceability reasons.

https://www.food.gov.uk/sites/default/files/advice-to-businesses-selling-food-online_0.pdf - this for online selling but I think its the same principals.
