We are Avara Foods

A place where great people produce great food, for some of the country’s biggest supermarkets and most popular restaurants.

Our Culture - What we do

Formed in 2018, Avara Foods is a joint venture between Cargill’s fresh chicken business in the UK and Faccenda’s fresh chicken, turkey and duck business. Avara Foods is the 3rd biggest poultry supplier in the UK.

The joint venture brings together two businesses with strong reputations for integrity, high standards and building long-term partnerships with customers, growers and suppliers.

What makes Avara Foods different are the people that work here. Over 6,000 individuals work as a team, putting pride and passion into everything they do: from the farm to the customer’s door. It’s not what we do, but how we do it.

At Avara Foods, we know how hard our graduates work and what a substantial contribution they make to our business and because of this, we offer the people who join us a very attractive benefits package.

You will also receive tailored learning and development programmes. As well as opportunities to study post-graduate qualifications.
