The investigation has exposed unsafe hygiene practices, altering kill dates and repackaging returned meat.

A Major food investigation by the Guardian newspaper and ITV news has exposed the largest supplier of chicken to UK supermarkets has been tampering with food safety records to entice customers to buy out of date food.

The investigation exposed workers changing slaughter dates on poultry processed at a 2 Sisters Food Group Plant.

The 2 Sisters Group produces a third of all poultry products eaten in the UK and supplies some of its biggest supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsburys, M&S, Aldi & Lidl.

The retailers responding to the Guardian evidence have now suspended their orders with 2 Sisters.

The investigation discovered that chicken portions returned by supermakets were being repackaged by 2 Sisters and sent out to other major supermarkets.

Workers dropped chicken on the floor and returned them to the production line.

Workers altered records of where chicken were slaughtered.

2 sisters is owned by Ranjit Singh Bopran and is the 2 Sisters parent company Boparan Holdings is chaired by Lord Allen a former chief executive of Granada and ITV. He was also a one time non exec director of Tesco.


We do not yet know if any Irish supermarkets are importing 2 Sisters products. We have put questions to Tesco Ireland, Aldi & Lidl and will report on updates.
