East Yorkshire Chicken Business Reaches Food Award Final

The team at an East Yorkshire poultry business is celebrating after reaching the final of a regional food and drink business award.

Middleton on the Wolds business, Soanes Poultry has been shortlisted in the Best New Food Product category in the Azets Food and Drink Business Awards.

Soanes Poultry’s MD, Ben Lee said: “We’re very pleased to be shortlisted in this prestigious award in such a competitive field. Our Higher Welfare chickens have 20% more room than our standard chickens and lots of enrichment items to stimulate their natural behaviours. Credit for reaching the final goes to the Clive Soanes Broilers team who rear the chickens.”

Soanes Poultry faces competition from fellow finalists, Vegan Fried Chickn Foods Ltd, The Bottled Baking Co, Legless Foods Ltd, Northern Bloc and fellow Yorkshire Wolds business, Charlie & Ivy’s. The team will learn whether they have been successful at an awards ceremony on Thursday 27th April at the Parade Ring Restaurant, York Racecourse.

Soanes Poultry was founded by Tom Soanes and has been rearing and preparing chicken for 75 years. It sells chicken to butchers and independent retailers throughout Yorkshire and to wholesalers and catering butchers nationwide.
