Waitrose awarded Best Retailer in animal welfare awards

We were pleased to see Waitrose awarded Best Retailer at the Compassion in World Farming Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards - the sixth time the supermarket has won the award.
We were pleased to see our primary customer Waitrose awarded Best Retailer in Compassion in World Farming’s Good Farm Animal Welfare awards. The supermarket marked the occasion – the fifth time they have received the prestigious Best Retailer Award, and the twelfth CIWF award in total – by releasing a series of photographs from their supply chain. The Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards – among the most important welfare recognitions in the industry - recognise and reward producers, manufacturers and retailers across the world for working in a "sustainable and responsible" way.

Waitrose Agriculture Director Heather Jenkins said: “This award is an extraordinary and powerful testament to the commitment of many colleagues, our farmers and our supply chain partners. “It demonstrates the strength of collaborative working to ensure our high standards of animal welfare are maintained. “We are absolutely delighted that these efforts have been recognised and proud to be able to share some beautiful photographs of those at the heart of this win - our animals and our farmers.”

We are pleased to see Waitrose once again receive such a well-deserved accolade – especially for a fifth time – and are pleased that our Cattle Connect scheme is among the supply chains recognised by this award.
