We are continually improving our approach to environmental welfare.
As a minimum, products derived from animals must comply with all applicable legislation relating to animal welfare in the country of production. In addition, we endorse the Farm Animal Welfare Council Five Freedoms Principles. We are collaborating with partners such as Compassion in World Farming, Humane Society International and the Humane League to establish a framework against which we can continually improve our approach to animal welfare.
We do not procure products from animals that have been subject to genetic modification, cloning or growth promoting substances and, where possible, routine antibiotics.
We believe animals should be humanely stunned prior to slaughter and where faith doctrine is relevant, procure products from suppliers holding the appropriate certifications of the faith without compromising product safety, legality or quality
