Despite animal welfare being important to most shoppers, most people are struggling to find higher welfare picnic food in the shops.
And a recent survey found under 44-year-olds are less likely to try their hand at making their own.
That’s why the RSPCA has teamed up with Richard Johnson, TV presenter and food writer, to encourage more people to roll up their sleeves and make their own higher welfare picnic food.
The RSPCA is already working with supermarkets to encourage them to provide higher welfare party and picnic food.
But in the meantime if you want to feel good about what you are eating this summer, our advice is to look for meat that is labelled RSPCA Freedom Food.
Or if you can’t find it, at least buy options like free-range,organic, outdoor-bred or reared and make your own picnic favourites by following Richard’s simple recipes.
