Our Poultry Plus story began in the 90's. Being food lovers at heart, our dream, and passion, was to provide the community with quality poultry. This dream soon hatched into a small family business that has grown to become one of Australia's leading poultry wholesalers.
Our humble premises were initially situated within a small factory in Thomastown. Since then our family business has grown exponentially and today we are proud to say that Poultry Plus is a leading poultry wholesale supplier. Despite our success, we have stayed true to our values; remaining family owned and working side by side to bring the very best food to our community.
In 1959 a very small butcher shop in Kensington supplied local customers with quality meat and chicken. Before long, news spread of the service and quality of meat and chicken supplied and the business outgrew the little shop. The business owner, John Piskopos realised that the market demand for poultry was ever increasing and so he took the business in a new direction: a wholesale supplier of poultry. In the late 1980’s, John Piskopos’ son, Nick joined the business and it grew substantially. The business diversified further into producing quality poultry products such as chicken schnitzels and chicken kebabs. The business outgrew a number of premises as the production of chicken schnitzels increased due to great demand. Today the company, now known as Universal Poultry Products, has evolved to become one of the largest manufacturers of chicken schnitzels in Australia.
In 2013, Nick’s son John, joined Universal Poultry Products also, making it three generations of family devoting themselves to the pursuit of manufacturing the finest poultry products on the market.
