We protect the health and welfare of animals at all stages of our supply chains.


  • To achieve Tier 2 on the Business Benchmark on Farm Animal Welfare's index by 2026.
  • To source 100% of Ocado's Own Range meat, dairy and eggs, including as ingredients, to 'Better' standard by 2030 (based on the 'Sourcing Better' Framework).

Our approach

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.

Managing our supply chain risks

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.

100% Ocado Own Range and branded eggs sold on ocado.com are organic or free range.

All Ocado Own Range chicken is British, and Own Range beef is British or Irish, certified under Red Tractor or Bord Bia schemes.
