The Best Retailer Award goes to the company that achieves the highest combined score across the six sections of Compassion’s Supermarket Survey: Overall approach to farm animal welfare, Laying hens, Broiler chickens, Dairy cows and calves, Sows and meat pigs and Farmed fish.

We score retailers on their answers to questions detailing their policies, rearing conditions of the animals and the measurement of key welfare indicators. 

In 2019Waitrose & Partners achieved outstanding scores in the Supermarket Survey and was presented with the Best Retailer Award at the ceremony in Brussels. Their constant aspiration to be the best and to do what is right for animals and for their customers makes them true leaders in Europe and they justly deserve the title of Best Retailer.

Waitrose also picked up the Best Retailer Marketing Award in 2019. Watch the video here.


In 2013, the Best Retailer Award was presented to Marks & Spencer
