RSPCA Assured - the RSPCA’s new ethical food label, previously known as Freedom Food - has gained the backing of leading supermarkets in its latest TV advert.

The TV ad, which first aired last year, now includes the logos of the biggest stockists of RSPCA Assured food; Sainsbury’s, Aldi, The Co-operative and Lidl.  

The ad will be shown over the May bank holiday weekend during popular programmes including Channel Four’s Sunday Brunch and  Come Dine With Me and The Simpsons and Modern Family on Sky 1.  It will also be shown on the Good Food, Food Network and More4 channels.

As well as the TV ad a new recipe video on how to make chicken kebabs will run on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

infographics and videos on chicken welfare, which will also be shared on social media.  

The RSPCA Assured label on meat, eggs and fish which launched in May last year hopes to help improve the lives of a further 100 million more farm animals, plus many millions of salmon and trout, within five years.

 And with 96% recognition of the RSPCA brand, it is estimated that the amount of RSPCA Assured labelled food could increase by as much as 200% within five years due to an increase in consumer demand.
