AN East Yorkshire poultry business has won new supply contract from a long established fresh food specialist and wholesaler.

Middleton-on-the-Wolds-based Soanes Poultry now supplies a range of its whole and portioned chicken and offal to Danish Crown owned Leivers Brothers.

Nottingham based Leivers Brothers has been supplying meat and poultry to independent fresh food retailers throughout the Midlands and beyond since it was founded in 1880.

Carolyn Pennock, head of Sales and Marketing at Soanes Poultry said the company is thrilled to be supplying the family run business, adding: “Leivers Brothers ordered our Christmas Cockerels for the first time last year and were so impressed with our quality and customer service that they have continued trading with us.

“Leivers Brothers have a great reputation within the industry and we are delighted to be working with them to get our chicken onto more plates throughout the country.”

Leivers Brothers general manager, Jon Leivers said: “We want to grow our business and one way of doing this is by forming strategic relationships with companies that share our passion for quality.”
