This year is our 25th birthday. But that’s not all we’re celebrating, we’re also thrilled that this year marks nearly 25 million animals (plus many millions of salmon and trout) being farmed to higher welfare standards on RSPCA Assured farms.
Twenty-five years ago, Freedom Food was launched, and in 2015, we changed our name to RSPCA Assured. Since then, the number of terrestrial animals on assured farms has risen by 54% which is about 11% of the UK farming market. We are also proud to have the majority of Scottish salmon farms under the scheme now.
