Make a real difference this Pancake Day and choose RSPCA Assured labelled eggs.

By looking for the RSPCA Assured logo you know the hens that laid your eggs were inspected to RSPCA welfare standards and weren’t kept in cages. Hens raised on RSPCA Assured farms are kept in barns with plenty of space, perches and nest boxes or in free-range systems with access to an outside range.

Find out more information about what makes eggs from an RSPCA Assured farm different on our hen welfare page.

Make RSPCA Assured milk part of your Pancake Day tradition

Thanks to Marks and Spencer, your commitment to buying higher welfare products can now include milk. M&S is the first major retailer to source its fresh milk from RSPCA Assured dairy farms.

Milk carrying the RSPCA Assured logo comes from farms where the cows must have environmental enrichment, such as brushes they can use to groom and scratch themselves.

The cows must also be provided with enough space and bedding so as they can lie down and get up comfortably without injuring themselves.
