Dynamic and innovative, James Burden Ltd. is a market leader in the wholesaling and distribution of poultry, meat and game. Trading from two specialist outlets within the famous market at Smithfield, where the company has been established for over 30 years, James Burden Ltd. has the reputation and resources to ensure continuity and supply to wholesalers, retailers, processors and caterers who demand consistent high quality. In a fast moving market, where the bargains struck set prices throughout the UK, customers appreciate the value and personal service we provide, and the opportunity to see exactly what they are buying – whether the purchase is counted in dozens of pallets or a single item. Customers, can of course, use their own transport to take their purchases with them, although many now opt for the convenience of our prompt delivery service – saving the cost and inconvenience of bringing a large vehicle into the City.
Meeting every requirement, our product selection includes: Poultry fresh, frozen and further processed. Game and speciality products. A full range of red meat cuts. Provisions and delicatessen products. A wide choice of halal meats sourced from suppliers worldwide, all of our produce is fully accredited and quality assured backed by traceability from farm to table. And our high volumes and fast turnover ensure freshness, product excellence and competitive pricing for all our customers.
All our partners are audited by us as compliant with all current EU and domestic legislation, and many are fully accredited for halal slaughter and production. Besides sourcing all poultry products, we also specialise in the contractual supply of tight-calibration fresh whole chickens and portions for further processing. And all products can be supplied in gas-flushed lined cartons or returnable plastic crates to meet our customers requirements.
