Over 2,500 Poultry Passports being issued to employees, with Vion UK, Cargill Meats Europe, Cranberry Foods, Faccenda, and PD Hook/2sisters having signed up to the scheme, which is designed to standardise training carried out across the poultry meat sector with each job role linked to a set of minimum training requirements.

The Poultry Passports are linked to an online database holding employees’ training records managed by its administrator, Poultec Training.

The initiative is a collaborative project between the British Poultry Council, National Farmers Union, Lantra and Poultec.
