The price of animal welfare

It’s really hard when food prices are rising and we are being squeezed so hard economically to add farm animal welfare to our list of ‘must haves’ when we shop.

This week is Farm Animal Week (July 25-31).

Many of you have stopped buying eggs from hens kept in battery cages – but this week why not go one step further and look for labels such as Freedom Food on products like sausages, chicken and salmon.

It will leave a better taste in your mouth.
