The management of animal welfare starts at the farm and we ask all our suppliers to work with farmers who are dedicated to quality and who take good care of their animals. We recognise the integral role that animal health and welfare play in sustainable production and we will continue to promote high welfare standards.
We have a number of set requirements to ensure animal welfare standards are met and maintained in our supply chains. These requirements are based on third-party assurance standards such as Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) certification for eggs, British Red Tractor or an equivalent in-country standard for products including poultry, beef, lamb, milk and cheese, and Responsible Use of Medicines in Agriculture Alliance (RUMA) targets for antibiotic use. We also commit to continually reviewing our standards and working with our partners, industry and suppliers to bring about improvements.
