Our Responsibilities

Our responsibilitiesWe ensure that all our farms comply with the Red Tractor Farm Assurance Poultry Scheme. This means that our husbandry and welfare meet nationally agreed levels of best agricultural practice. Our processors and end users can therefore be confident about product quality attributes including food safety, animal welfare and environmental protection.

In addition, some of our farms are Freedom Food certified. This is the RSPCA’s farm assurance and food labelling scheme. We ensure our chickens are given a nourishing diet and a spacious, comfortable and stimulating environment that meets their physical and behavioural needs. More information can be found on the Freedom Food website…

We are regulated by the Environment Agency’s IPPC regulations. This involves an annual audit and covers all environmental concerns (including air, land and water pollution).
