Dedicated solely to improving welfare of animals in the food chain, it is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the RSPCA, a separate Charity and not-for-profit. Working to ISO 17065 and UKAS accredited, it is recognised as the only assurance scheme in Europe dedicated to farm animal welfare and acknowledged as a higher welfare scheme by the UK Government.
Assessing chickens, turkeys, laying hens, pigs, sheep, cattle, salmon and trout. The standards cover health, diet, space, light , bedding and enrichments through to transportation and humane slaughter. A new chain of custody standard has been launched to support traceability through the supply chain and the use of the RSPCA Assured label.
The RSPCA Assured label makes it easy to recognise products from animals that have been farmed to RSPCA farm animal welfare standards. It raises consumer awareness, builds confidence and trust in the provenance of the products and supports the CSR aspirations of companies involved with the scheme.
