Objects of the company

Freedom Food Limited is a subsidiary charitable company of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).

The primary object of the company is to prevent cruelty to animals by the promotion of humane farming, transportation, marketing and slaughter of farm animals by implementing a set of rearing and handling standards approved from time to time by the RSPCA (marketing refers to transfer of animals prior to slaughter, not communications marketing).

Further, the company seeks to promote consumer preference for produce from livestock producers that conform to the RSPCA welfare standards for farmed animals  by identifying as many products as possible with a unique trademark and  encouraging 

retailers to market these products.
