'In factory farming, animals are raised using intensive ‘production line’ methods to maximise the amount of meat or eggs produced while minimising costs. It is characterised by close confinement in barren and unnatural conditions, and involves massive environmental pollution.’ from Factory Farming,,Shop Ethical! ...the Guide


Actions: Most pig and poultry dervied products are factory farmed. Seek free range ham and turkey, chicken and eggs, and 'accredited free range' where possible. You might want to choose free-range eggs for that custard on the pudding.



  • See Retailer table below for Free Range produce.
  • Please note: 'Bred free range' piglets are weaned at about 4 weeks and raised indoors in eco shelters. Unlike 'accredited free range', which raise an animal that is free range for all of its life. Choose 'accredited free range' where possible.
