IN 2018 the Co Op UK moved all their fresh pork supply, gammon and bacon to RSPCA assured standard, so were successful in receiving a good pig award.

In 2012, The Co-operative Food, along with their supplier 2 Sisters Food Group, decided to increase the density at which their broiler chickens were stocked, from 30kg/m2 (15 birds/m2) to 34kg/m2 (17 birds/m2). As they no longer met our award criteria, Compassion was obliged to withdraw their Good Chicken Award.

In 2008 the company won Good Egg Awards for both their shell-eggs and eggs used in own-brand products. The Co-op is currently the largest UK retailer selling and using only free-range eggs. Their commitment to ensuring pasture access and good health and welfare for dairy cows and to rearing dairy calves in higher welfare systems earned them a Good Dairy Award in 2011.
