Avara Foods

You may not have heard of us, but there’s a good chance you’ve enjoyed our products. Avara Foods is one of the UK’s leading food businesses, supplying chicken and turkey to the country’s major supermarkets and well-known restaurants.

We own and manage our entire supply chain, from farms to factory and all the way to the customer door – meaning we have careers that cover a whole range of functions.

We have major processing sites across England and Wales, and an agricultural network of over 350 farms, spanning from North Yorkshire to the South Coast and Wales. As a local inclusive community employer, we want to invest in and grow our own talent for the future.

We believe that our success is founded not in what we do, but how we do it; it’s our 7000 talented colleagues and their diverse backgrounds and capabilities that make the difference.

We want to ensure our customers have full confidence in us. Confidence in our products. Confidence in the provenance of our ingredients. Confidence in our processes.

This is how we do things.

Agriculture
Provenance is our priority. We have full control over our eggs, birds and feed, meaning we’re able to trace each product back to its root. We’re proud to have some of the most experienced, knowledgeable and passionate farming teams in the business.

Processing
Our production sites form the vital link between farm and final product. Our fantastic teams work 24/7 to meet daily demands, ensuring products are fresh and safe to distribute. Food safety and biosecurity is paramount.

Distribution
We go the extra mile to ensure we cater to each of our customers’ unique needs. We know what consumers like, keep track of trends, and most importantly, have a track record of delivering fresh, high quality products on time, every time
