All products supplied to the Ministry must comply with all current and subsequent relevant UK and EU Legislation, regulations and directives. The suppliers are required to provide products that are sourced in compliance with EC Regulations and from assured providers under animal welfare conditions that are compatible with the UK animal welfare regulations. There are no plans solely to procure or use meat and dairy products which are free range or produced to standards equivalent to those of the RSPCA Freedom Food scheme.
