Holco source local poultry products from a range of branded and non branded suppliers. In our production facility in South Australia, we bone our own birds to maximise freshness which also allows us to portion control to our customers exact specifications and requirements. We range predominantly grain fed and free range.
The majority of chickens boned and processed through Holco are Grain Fed or Grain assisted. This allows for fast muscle development and consistent growth.
We use the locally grown produce and bone between 30,000 and 40, 000 birds a week at our production facility in Cavan, South Australia.
Free range means chickens have access to paddocks outside during the day (weather permitting) and are free to roam, scratch and peck. Ingham Free Range chickens are gently herded into their sheds at night to prevent attack by natural predators such as foxes.
Fed a grain formula to supplement their natural diet, Free Range chickens (as well as their normal counterparts) are not given any hormones or steroids and all feed is formulated to meet strict Free Range Egg and Poultry Australia (FREPA) standards.
One of Australia’s largest poultry suppliers, Ingham, now produces free range chickens for the Australian market. Similar in look and size, free range chickens are nutritionally equivalent to other chickens however they may offer a slightly different taste and texture as the chickens have access to natural food sources in their diet.
To be assured you have purchased Free Range Chicken, look for the FREPA logo on the pack, which means the chicken has been farmed, audited and accredited in accordance with FREPA guidelines.
