Broiler Chicken Lawsuit Alleges Anticompetitive Scheme Against Growers

Audet & Partners, LLP is investigating a number of claims as part of a broiler chicken lawsuit that several of the largest poultry companies in the U.S. conspired to artificially depress compensation paid to broiler farmers or “Growers.”

Information that has recently surfaced suggests that companies including Tyson, Pilgrim Pride, Perdue and several others, have allegedly conspired for almost a decade by sharing detailed information and statistics related to Grower compensation in a concerted effort to depress Grower compensation paid by members of the alleged Integrator cartel.  This information was allegedly shared among Integrators through Agri Stats, a statistical research and analysis firm.

It has additionally been suggested that there was an express or implied understanding among the nation’s largest Integrators not to contract with or “poach” growers that have worked with competitors, thus further depressing compensation ultimately commanded by Growers.
