As a world leading food service company, we can have a positive impact on the world through sourcing responsibly, enriching lives and collaborating for global change. That’s why we are committed to continuously enhancing animal welfare standards.
Improving animal welfare and shifting towards more sustainable animal agriculture is a key component of our approach to responsible sourcing. This approach is underpinned by efforts to increase the visibility of our complex supply chain, allowing us to make better informed procurement decisions at every level of our business.
Our strategy covers all animal products purchased across our global supply chain, including but not limited to: Eggs, meat, dairy and farmed fish and our policies extend to all markets, countries and sectors.

As an absolute minimum, our supply chain must comply with all applicable legislation relating to animal welfare in the country of production and purchasing. We also endorse the Farm Animal Welfare Council (FAWC) Five Freedom principles for animal welfare:
