How RSPCA Assured works

How RSPCA Assured works

1 of X pages

Our team of assessors and RSPCA farm livestock officers check farm animals have been well cared for to strict RSPCA welfare standards.

The RSPCA’s welfare standards cover the whole of an animal’s life, from their health and diet to environment and care.

This includes things like space, light, bedding, transport and humane slaughter.

Types of farm covered

We inspect indoor as well as outdoor farms, including free range and organic. This means we can improve the lives of more animals while offering you greater choice.

Only products from animals kept on farms that meet the RSPCA's standards can be labelled RSPCA Assured. So look for the logo and show that you care.

  • We have more than 3,000 members across farming and food production
  • We've been acknowledged as a higher level scheme by the UK government
  • Unlike other labelling schemes, we are completely independent from the food and farming industries
  • Our vision is for all farm animals to have a good life and be treated with compassion and respect.

Get involved

The RSPCA Assured label makes it easy to recognise products from animals that have had a better life, so you can feel confident and 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 inspected by our assessors.
