40 YEARS LEADING THE UK IN THE PIG FARMING BUSINESS
YAMS Show 2 February 2022
We breed and rear over 1 million pigs a year using industry-leading production systems, including outdoor born, straw-finished, RSPCA Freedom Food Assured, free range and organic. With around 30% of the UK market share, this makes us the UK’s largest pig farming business.
BQP has supplied high welfare British pork to the major retailers in the UK for 40 years, since 1979.
Being the above has resulted this year, in all our pigs being able to go to slaughter at the Pilgrims UK plants and luckily we have had no on farm slaughters.
BQP sympathies lay with our friends in the industry who through 2021 have not been as lucky.
New Builds Built
Opportunities with us
BQP now has over 150 buildings that follow a similar proven design. This design provides the optimum conditions for pigs from weaning to finishing.
Conversion of Existing Buildings
Currently within our breadth of BQP farms we have successfully operating buildings that were formerly used for other purposes. These buildings have been converted to suit pig finishing. Buildings that have previously been converted include cattle yards, dairy housing, broiler sheds and laying sheds.
BQP operates a high welfare outdoor breeding system, working with 60+ partner farmers.
The Hadingham brothers demonstrate how finishing pigs complements their arable business.
