The SPCA is set to put high animal welfare firmly on the menu, at their SPCA ‘Blue Tick’ stand (Wellington Food Show Westpac Stadium, 11-13 May 2012) in a bid to raise awareness that there are humanely farmed egg and meat products that consumers can choose to cook with; and why.
The SPCA ‘Blue Tick’ programme is the only independently audited animal welfare set of standards in New Zealand. It is awarded to food producers who meet their high welfare farming standards. The auditing of these standards is carried out on a regular basis, by independent auditors and also involves numerous ‘spot’ checks. Being New Zealand’s second most trusted non-profit organisation, the SPCA ‘Blue Tick’ is therefore a guarantee to consumers - from ‘paddock to plate’ - that they can trust.
