A Compassion in World Farming Award for ISS
ISS Facility Services Food and Hospitality UK has been awarded a Good Egg Award by Compassion in World Farming, in recognition of commitment to farm animal welfare.
Compassion’s Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards recognise food companies across Europe that are making it their policy to produce and source higher welfare eggs, meat and dairy produce.
Their flagship scheme, the Good Egg Award, has been running since 2007 to celebrate organisations that source only cage-free eggs. The programme has now expanded to include the Good Chicken Award, launched in 2010, the Good Dairy Award in 2011 and the Good Pig Award in 2012.
Andy Chappell, Managing Director, ISS FS Food and Hospitality, said:
– ISS Facility Services Food and Hospitality UK are extremely proud to offer all its clients across the UK free range eggs, and the decision to only purchase eggs from cage free hens shows our commitment to improving the animal welfare standards in the UK. Our clients are increasingly becoming more aware of the impact their purchases have on animal welfare, and our decision to move to free range eggs meets the expectations of our customers and consumers.
Paul Whiteley, Procurement Director ISS FS Food and Hospitality, stated:
– We are absolutely delighted to receive the Good Egg Award from Compassion in World Farming. At ISS Food & Hospitality, we are and will continue to be committed to the best possible standards of animal welfare and this award reflects the work we have carried out over the last year.Over 265 million hens, chickens, pigs and dairy cows and calves are now set to benefit each year as a result of award winners’ policies.
