Arthur Diaper, director of Diaper Poultry of the U.K., has died, reports East Anglian Daily Times. He was 64.

Diaper dedicated his career to his family’s poultry company, starting in the factory and later as manager of the farms.


Based in Stowmarket in the county of Suffolk, Diaper Poultry was founded in 1911. According to the firm’s website, it is one of the country’s few remaining to produce, process and distribute its own chicken, supplying fresh and frozen products to butchers, farm shops, delicatessens and restaurants across much of the U.K.

Diaper is survived by his widow Moira, sons James and Oliver, and brothers and co-directors of the firm, John and David.
