1964
In 1964, Mr.John Francis De Freitas started Montrose Poultry Farms Ltd. The company grew from its humble beginnings in backyard farming to a well-established poultry operation. John's son Peter De Freitas subsequently took the company to a new level in the forthcoming years.
1990
In the early 1990, Montrose and ChickGrowers merged to form Chickmont Food Ltd. The name Chick-Mont is derived from the "Chick in ChickGrowers and the "Mont" in Montrose - to arrive at Chickmont Foods. Our custom-built processing facility is adjacent to the ABC highway, located in the south of Barbados.

In 1992, Monty the chicken was born, wearing the slogan, "They're the Best". He featured in many ad series related to the company and he was prominently displayed on the processing plant wall. He was also featured on the roundabout leading to Chickmont Foods Ltd., which to this day is still affectionately known as the Chickmont roundabout.
1999
On November 30, 1999, Chickmont Foods Ltd. finalised the amalgamation with Super Poultry Farms Ltd. in the north of the island, which added a third brand of poultry and egg products into the mix.
