RSPCA Assured has published its annual review for 2016.

It was another landmark year for RSPCA Assured. 

The increase in awareness and support for the new RSPCA Assured ethical label - which makes it easy for shoppers and diners to recognise products that had a good life - exceeded our expectations.

Availability of RSPCA Assured products has also continued to grow in both retail and foodservice.

“Increased support for the new RSPCA Assured label is translating into greater numbers of producers and animals benefiting from the scheme - which at the end of the day is what it’s all about!

Chief executive Clive Brazier
