It’s simple. Nearly one billion animals are farmed every year in the UK for food - that’s a staggering 56 times more farm
RSPCA Assured is the RSPCA’s ethical food label dedicated to farm animal welfare. Our vision is for all farm animals to have a good life and be treated with compassion and respect. The RSPCA Assured label makes it easy to recognise products from animals that have had a better life, so you can feel good about your choice when shopping and eating out. If there’s an RSPCA Assured label on the packaging of the eggs, fish and meat that you buy, you know the farms - and everyone else involved in the animals’ lives - have been assessed and meet RSPCA animal welfare standards.
Where our food comes from is a hot topic, and people have lost trust in pre-prepared food - especially after the horsemeat scandal which hit the media in May this year.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the number of higher welfare products available. It's true that some cost a little more, but I discovered lots of deals on Freedom Food-labelled products.

I'm in love. Completely besotted. And I'm not talking about my husband (though I love him just as much, obviously). The lucky recipient of my adoration is our newly adopted cat, Pepper.

Last week we were all shocked by the heartbreaking photos of <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/05/30/staffordshire-cross-found_n_1556988.html" target="_hplink">Hope</a> the dog who was found emaciated and half the weight she should have been. She was described by a vet as the thinnest dog she'd seen alive.
