We are the UK’s largest food standards scheme, covering all the areas you care about – animal welfare, food safety, traceability and environmental protection.
Working with experts in their fields, we are dedicated to ensuring that families across Britain have access to safe, quality food that has been grown and reared in the UK to our rigorous farming standards. Our team of independent assessors perform checks at every step of the food journey from farm to packet, so that people can be sure that it is traceable, safe and farmed with care.
As the recognised scheme of note with over 46,000 British farmer members, our products contribute over £14 billion to the UK economy and Red Tractor membership provides a route to market to some of the UK’s largest customers.
Since our establishment in 2000, our Standards have continually evolved to improve food safety, animal welfare and environmental protection, such that they are now among the best in the world.
