In 2014 RSPCA Assured, previously Freedom Food, celebrated 20 years of improving the lives of farm animals!

RSPCA Assured was established by the RSPCA in 1994 as a higher welfare farm assurance and food labelling scheme.

In fact, it’s the only scheme in the UK that’s dedicated to farm animal welfare.

An impressive 700 million cows, chickens, ducks, hens, pigs, sheep and turkeys have been covered by the Freedom Food scheme since 1994.

There are currently 40 million of these animals on the scheme.  In addition there are over 140 million salmon covered by RSPCA Assured!  

An independent report - published to mark our 20th anniversary - looks at changes to farm animal welfare over the past 20 years.
