18TH SEPTEMBER 2014 Scottish consumers face the prospect of being unable to buy Scottish chicken in their local supermarket as further cuts to Scottish producers’ contracts are announced. Without urgent action the Scottish Government’s own Poultry Plan, produced in December 2013, will be redundant. The retail poultry market is predicted to grow 26 per cent over the next five years but despite the clear demand for quality Scottish chicken the number of independent chicken producers in Scotland has fallen from 28 to 12 since December. The number of chickens produced in Scotland will fall by more than seven million birds per year. This week saw the closure of a number of company-owned farms in the Scottish Borders by Hook 2 Sisters, Scotland’s dominant chicken processor. It followed an announcement detailing the termination of four growers’ contracts late in August as well as free range contracts last week. To date, 12 growers, who are all based around, or north of Aberdeen, have lost their contracts and there are fears that there could be more cuts to follow. There is also speculation that the recent closure by PD Hook of its Inverurie hatchery may now see Scottish organic growers struggle to source chicks. The restructuring, which began in November 2013, of those supplying both 2 Sisters Food Group and now Hook 2 Sisters has been brutal. The Union believes that every Scottish consumer expects to find fresh Scottish chicken in Scottish stores, but without an immediate change in fortunes, that wish appears undeliverable. Up until now the Union has campaigned for a cutting plant in Scotland, and that now will take a back seat as recent events come into focus and take priority. After meeting with the Scottish Chicken Growers Association (SCGA), NFU Scotland has agreed to provide some legal support to those whose contracts have been terminated. The Union has contacted the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) making its case for the Scottish chicken market to be investigated and a report put forward to the Competition Commission following this latest round of cuts. The OFT was consulted on the takeover of Vion by 2 Sisters last year and at the time authorised the move. However, NFU Scotland feels the actions taken since then within the industry go against the reassurances given to the OFT during its original investigation and requires a second look. The Union does not believe that what it is seeing in Scotland represents the normal functioning of market forces.
