Chicken producer charged with price fixing

A broiler chicken producer in Georgia has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Colorado with participating in a nationwide conspiracy to fix prices and rig bids for broiler chicken products.

The indictment says two men with Claxton Poultry Farms in southeastern Georgia conspired in price fixing and bid rigging from at least 2012 through at least 2019.

Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation, based in Colorado, pleaded guilty in the scheme and was sentenced in February to pay a criminal fine of more than 100-Million-dollars for its role in the conspiracy.
