Worshipful Company of Poulters
The Worshipful Company of Poulters
is one of the Livery Companies
of the City of London
. In 1368, the organisation received the power to regulate the sale of poultry, swans, pigeons, rabbits and game. The Company, which was incorporated under a Royal Charter
in 1665, is no longer an association of tradesmen that retains its ancient powers. Now, it is more of a charitable institution, as are most of the other Livery Companies.
The Poulters' Company ranks thirty-fourth in the order of precedence
of Livery Companies. Its motto is Remember Your Oath
