Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).

This page provides information about a UK farm assurance scheme, including welfare standards for all animal species on the farm and while being transported.

British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

This program is an independent third party certification system which assures consumers that food products comply with BC SPCA developed farm animal welfare standards for the handling of farm animals. The BC SPCA standard differs with the national code of practices published by the Canadian AGRI-Food Research Council in farm animal husbandry practices, including space per animal and transportation times.


This recent report, focused mostly on Europe, finds that as of this time, the management of farm animal welfare appears to have received much less attention than other issues on the corporate responsibility agenda.
