It's Christmas again and whether you’re a last-minute shopper or a meticulous planner, you probably haven't finished buying everything for your festive feast just yet. But don't worry, we’ve got you covered with our pick of the most exciting higher-welfare festive fare available to buy this year.
From turkey crowns to gammon joints and even some tasty sides, you’ll find a whole range of higher-welfare Christmas products available at supermarkets across the country.
Up to two-thirds of us will be tucking into turkey this Christmas according to the British Poultry Association. But due to changing diets, demand for small turkeys is expected to be high, and availability may be limited.
However, if you’re hoping to serve turkey, smaller birds are not the only option. Turkey crowns (the breast meat with the legs and wings removed) are also a good choice. Alternatively, you can buy a medium or large turkey as usual and plan ahead to ensure the leftovers are not wasted.

A great accompaniment to your turkey centrepiece and another Christmas tradition has to be a joint of gammon. A cracking choice for fans of crackling, and any leftovers will make delicious cold cuts for Boxing Day or can be used up in soups and stews.
Pigs in blankets have become something of an obsession in the UK at Christmas, and retailers are getting increasingly creative with their offerings. One of the many great things about pigs in blankets is that they make a great snack, starter or side dish.
If you fancy getting some RSPCA Assured sausages and bacon and having a go at making your own, you can follow our simple pigs in blankets recipe.
Is there a more glamorous or indulgent way to kick off your Christmas morning than with smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and a cheeky glass of fizz? How about award-winning, higher welfare RSPCA Assured smoked salmon or trout?
