Animal welfare

Our policy

At Bidfood, the welfare of animals throughout our supply chain is important to us.

Our policy requires that all of our fresh meat must come from approved and BRC accredited abattoirs, and that the meat supplied is compliant with the EU Animal Welfare Directive 98/58/EC.

We also offer customers meat that is compliant to higher welfare standards such as Red Tractor, QMS and Freedom Foods.

Our pledge

Bidfood’s fresh and frozen meat products and preparations, including continental meats in our own brand range are from animals that have been raised in compliance with European Animal Welfare legislation (EU Directive 2008/120/EC) as a minimum.

This is enacted in UK legislation as “The Welfare of Farmed Animals (England) Regulations 2007”.
