Chesterfield Poultry

The halal chicken produced by this Chesterfield company is sold in grocery stores and small supermarkets around Britain. The company claims to process 120,000 birds a week, and this year opened a new factory which it says will increase output to 200,000. Chesterfield Poultry is led by brothers Mohammed Fayez Ahmed and Nadeem Iqbal, whose father and two uncles established a grocery business in 1972 before moving into poultry in 1999. Improved packaging and branding, together with larger premises, helped sales grow 97% a year from £2.3m in 2005 to £17.5m in 2008.
