Are you BBQ ready this summer?

You've got your flip-flops and sunhat on. You've fired up the barbie, given those trusty tongs a few practice clicks. Now it's time to enjoy a traditional summertime BBQ.

On a hot summer's day, there's nothing quite like the aroma of juicy burgers, chargrilled veggies and succulent sausages sizzling away on the barbie.

But even during barbecue season, you have the power to make a difference to animal welfare. By looking for the RSPCA Assured logo on packs of sausages you buy, you'll know the pigs have been cared for to RSPCA welfare standards and have had better lives.

If you're looking for something a little different this year, our RSPCA Assured sausage kebabs are a great way to give this barbecue favourite a new twist.

Eat less, eat better

We’re encouraging people who choose to eat less meat, fish, eggs and dairy to eat better high welfare produce when they do. Check out the downloadable two-week meal plan which will help you eat less, eat better.

For the perfect barbecue

Get started early so your barbecue has time to burn down. This will mean you can cook over the white-hot coals rather than the flames. Once you're ready, put down the lid and try to avoid checking every five minutes. As the saying goes “if you’re looking, it ain’t cooking”.
