Written Question
Moy Park and Pilgrim's: Finance
Tuesday 8th March 2022

Asked by: Lord Cunningham of Felling (Labour - Life peer)

Question to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs:

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have provided financial support to (1) Moy Park, or (2) Pilgrim's Pride, for their operations in the UK.

Answered by Lord Benyon - Minister of State (Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office)

The Government provides a wide range of grants and financial support which UK businesses are able to access. No central database of beneficiaries is held.

In the last year, Moy Park has received no financial support from Defra, while Pilgrim’s Pride has utilised the pigmeat Slaughter Incentive Payment scheme, which was introduced in January 2022 in response to the current disruption in the pig sector.
