"Waitrose is a different kind of supermarket. As a co-owned business without external shareholders - everyone who works for Waitrose owns Waitrose - we take the long-term view in everything we do. This extends to the way we view animal welfare. Our customers and our fellow Partners - as everyone who works in Waitrose is known - trust us and this extends to the way we treat all the animals in our supply chains. When our customers shop with us they know that the meat they are eating has been sourced from animals reared to high standards of care and welfare by dedicated farmers who share our values. And because we believe in a culture of continuous improvement, we are pleased to work closely with our farmers and Compassion in World Farming to drive forward our welfare protocols. This is why we are especially proud to have won the Best Supermarket Award for the fifth time and see this as validation of our desire to be a business that puts 'doing the right thing' at the heart of its business plan."
