Lawsuit alleges processors illegally shared data and agreed not to recruit growers from one another to suppress market.

A new lawsuit alleging price fixing by poultry processors was filed this week in the U.S. District of Colorado, adding to a growing number of similar lawsuits. Two Texas chicken growers are claiming that beginning as early as 2008, Perdue Farms, Tyson Foods, Pilgrim’s Pride, Koch Foods and Sanderson Farms “illegally agreed to share detailed data on grower compensation with one another, with the purpose and effect of artificially depressing grower compensation below competitive levels.”
