Most of our food shopping takes place in supermarkets. The influence retailers have over the farm animal welfare standards adopted by food producers is enormous due to their buying power and ability to promote one product over another.
Compassion works with major retailers throughout Europe and key players in other countries to help drive higher welfare standards across the food industry.
Compassion’s Supermarket Survey rates retailers on their policies, performance and overall approach to farm animal welfare. Through our positive engagement on this project, we have forged close working relationships with the retail sector which has opened up channels for continuous improvement and reaped significant results in raising welfare standards.
Our biennial Retailer Awards, which stem from the Supermarket Survey results, enable us to recognise and celebrate the wide and varied work being carried out within the retail sector.
