The Department for International Trade (DIT) works with Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation, a division of JBS which owns Moy Park and Pilgrim’s UK, supporting their UK operations.

All businesses operating in the UK, including those with foreign ownership, must conduct their business with integrity, (acting responsibly, honestly and abiding by ethical principles) and, in compliance with UK law [such as the Bribery Act 2010].

DIT supports foreign investors across all industries, encouraging: the growth of their UK based interests and, their contribution to future job creation and the levelling-up agenda.
