Red Tractor Assured Food Standards - Safe food, healthy animals and a healthy environment

The main areas covered by our standards are food safety, animal welfare and care for the environment. Food safety is vital when bugs like salmonella and campylobacter are on the prowl. If you think good hygiene is important when you’re preparing and serving food at home, we don’t think you should have to settle for anything less from farmers and food companies.

When it comes to animal welfare, our standards require Red Tractor farmers to provide their livestock with fresh water and a healthy diet at all times, as well as adequate shelter and space. From an environmental perspective we require that our farmers take care of wildlife habitats and make sure they don’t pollute streams and rivers.
