Working With ABP.

We work with over 13,000 farmers across the UK, and every one of them is an expert in what they do.

Like us, our farmers are committed to best practice agriculture and the production of premium quality beef and lamb, which means the relationships we have with them are based on trust and mutual interest.

It’s also why we offer a pay-on-the-day policy, VIA grading, and a bespoke livestock management portal.

Our Pay-On-The-Day Promise.

A policy unique to ABP, it guarantees that our farmers receive payment on the very same day they deliver their livestock. We weigh the cattle, and then we pay, immediately.

It means that our supplier farmers are instantly rewarded for all the hard work they have put in, and completely removes the prospect and worry of late payments. It’s a policy we put in place to demonstrate our appreciation and partnership with our farmers.

Rewarding Carcass Quality.

In 2014, we became the first UK meat producer to introduce VIA (Visual Imaging Analysis) grading. The technology enables us to assess carcass quality with an unrivalled degree of accuracy – and reward our farmers accordingly.

We measure quality by applying the VIA measurement to a 15-point payment grid, which refines the premiums and discounts we pay for individual cattle.

As well as ensuring the best cattle generate the best payment, the overall objective is that the transparency of the process will help drive up quality and improve carcass yields.
