We have our own abattoirs and are committed to selling 100% British fresh beef, lamb and pork, over 95% of which is processed through these sites.
We are also 100% British on fresh chicken, eggs and milk, a commitment made possible through strong alliances with selected suppliers.
Red Tractor Assured
All our own brand fresh meat and dairy must be Red Tractor farm assured. Red Tractor is a world leading farm assurance programme that covers a large number of areas that are important for Morrisons and our customers.
This will include food safety, animal welfare and environmental care and ensures that every farm is independently audited on a regular basis.
Our farmed fish and seafood all comes from Aquaculture Stewardship Council, Global Aquaculture Alliance Best Aquaculture Practices or Global G.A.P certified farms, all of which include provisions for fish welfare.

We clearly label all our products because our customers tell us they want to be able to make informed decisions about what they buy.
From listening to our customers we know that buying British is important, so we ensure that country of origin is always clearly labelled.
All our higher welfare and organic products are clearly labelled, this includes products such as our free range eggs, free range chicken, outdoor bred pork and organic milk.
Farm assurance standards
For meat used in our products which is sourced from outside the UK, our policy is to ensure that minimum farm assurance standards are in place.
Our farmed animal and fish standards form part of our contractual agreements with suppliers and are strictly monitored in our supply chains.
Our minimum standards require that farm animal and fish welfare is independently audited by an approved certification body and developed in a transparent multi-stakeholder process.
