About Hazeldenes Chicken

Hazeldenes Chicken was started by Dick Hazeldenes in 1938 in Kangaroo Flat in Bendigo Victoria and has grown rapidly ever since. Hazeldenes then moved to a larger establishment in Lockwood, Victoria. Hazeldenes have been supplying Melbourne Meat Merchants with their free-range chicken products for many years.

We are proud to partner with Hazeldenes to make sure that we get the best and freshest free-range chicken to our wholesale customers. Our butchers work hard to ensure that they process the chickens in convenient portions and with a long shelf life.

Hazeldenes trust us with processing and supplying their premium chicken to local Melbourne cafes, pubs, restaurants, chefs and independent supermarkets. They know our experienced butchers are skilled in cutting, deboning, trimming and portioning their chickens to meet customers’ requirements.
