Whenever you buy something carrying the RSPCA Assured mark, you can be sure that animals were reared to the RSPCA’s higher welfare standards.
The RSPCA’s welfare standards insist that farmed animals are provided with a physically and mentally stimulating environment.
Unlike some other schemes, RSPCA Assured inspects the welfare of animals from birth right through to slaughter, including transport.
In many cases, the RSPCA welfare standards specify space allowances above legal requirements and other assurance providers.
We require that animals be given antibiotics when they actually need them, such as if an animal is sick or injured.
In addition to the RSPCA standards for farmed animals, RSPCA Assured also has its own set of standards for food manufacturers.
