About us

At Top Choice Poultry, we are dedicated to delivering excellence. Since our inception in 2016, we have grown to become not just the largest poultry producer in the region but also a household name that’s both well known and deeply cherished.

We carry forward the legacy of over 50 years of poultry expertise, being able to trace our roots back to the esteemed Latvian producer, Ķekava Foods, which was founded in 1967. Today, as an integral part of the Akola Group, which acquired Ķekava Foods back in 2013 and Vilniaus Paukštynas in 2021, we leverage our extensive experience in international trading, agricultural product cultivation, and food production to bring unparalleled quality to your table.

Our production process spans three strategically located facilities in Latvia and Lithuania – Ķekava Foods, with two production sites in Rīga and Ķekava; and Vilniaus Paukštynas. This network of production plants provides the necessary flexibility and efficiency in our production processes. We prioritise Ķekava Foods and Vilniaus Paukštynas as our producers to ensure that we offer the most competitive product in each category. By harnessing the strengths of each location, we are able to maintain a seamless supply chain, adapt to market demands swiftly, and efficiently deliver our poultry products to consumers globally.

Our brand successfully is available in over 50 countries worldwide, and has made significant inroads into the Scandinavian market, as well as the UK and Ireland. For our Nordic friends, we have introduced the Grannfågel brand, which translates as “neighbour bird” in Swedish, a testament to our commitment to catering to the diverse tastes and preferences of our international clientele.
