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.
