In 2017, M&S became the first major retailer to source its fresh milk from RSPCA Assured dairy farms.
The M&S Milk Pool consists of 44 farmers, all of which deliver regionally sourced RSPCA Assured fresh milk to their stores. This means that more than 150 million pints sold every year now come from farms which adhere to higher welfare standards.
Since 1999 the M&S Milk Pledge has been in place meaning that Select Farmers always receive a fair price for their milk guaranteeing them a secure future.
To this day, M&S continues to be the only retail which supplies RSPCA Assured labelled milk. All fresh milk you find on the shelves at M&S will carry the RSPCA Assured logo on the packaging.

Animal welfare is a top priority for our business and we’re proud to be the first and only major retailer to sell RSPCA Assured milk. This gives our customers confidence that the milk they buy from us is produced to the highest welfare standards for our milking cows.
