NSF International

NSF International work with the food industry to create consumer confidence from farm to food.
We work with farmers to help them demonstrate the quality of what they produce. Farm assurance covers animal welfare, food safety, traceability and provenance and environmental protection so consumers can be confident the food they eat is safe and responsibility produced.

RSPCA Assured

RSPCA Assured is the RSPCA’s farm animal welfare assurance scheme and ethical food label. The RSPCA Assured label makes it easy for people to recognise products that meet higher welfare standards in shops, restaurants and more; something that is increasingly important to British consumers.

Our members have reported lower mortality and a better quality product, adding value to their businesses and providing opportunities for a better margin. What’s more, they tell us that operating to RSPCA welfare standards has improved their working environment and job satisfaction.

We’re proud to be sponsoring the Young Farmer of the Year category. Our vision is for all farm animals to have a better life and to be treated with compassion and respect. This next generation of farmers bring creativity, enthusiasm and passion to this challenge and we are excited to support this new wave of talent.

“It was a huge surprise and tremendous honour to receive a Farmers Weekly Award. I am extremely fortunate to work in a great business with a fantastic team and also to be supported by a truly wonderful family.
It was an incredible night and a privilege to be there amongst so many dedicated, passionate farmers.”
