The Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards programme is led by our Food Business team who work directly with major food companies to inspire and influence them to put animal welfare at the heart of their businesses.

We award companies for their policies and commitments that result in positive impacts on farm animal welfare in their supply chain, by meeting specific welfare criteria.

We have run our flagship scheme, the Good Egg Award, since 2007 to recognise companies that source cage-free eggs. Since then, we have expanded the awards programme to include the Good Chicken Award, the Good Dairy Award, the Good Pig Award and the Good Rabbit Award.

The Retailer Awards are celebrated as part of the Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards every other year as this coincides with Compassion’s biennial Supermarket Survey from which automatic entry to the awards is ensured.  The survey is open to continental European retailers as well as UK-based supermarkets and enables retailers to benchmark their performance against their peers. Find out more about the 2017 Retailer Award winners here.

Compassion also awards Special Recognition Awards to companies that demonstrate outstanding innovation, commitment or achievement in the field of farm animal welfare. Click here to find out more.

As a direct result of this work, more than 575 million animals are set to benefit each year from the policies of all our winners since the Awards began in 2007 – and it is all thanks to your support.
