We, the undersigned, petition the Council to have RSPCA approved meat as minimum standard in school meals in Manchester.
More details from petitioner:
We ask Manchester City Council to change its procedure so that all school meal caterers only supply meat from farms that have animal welfare standards that at least satisfy the Royal Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) Assured farms scheme.
In non-RSPCA Assured farms animals are often as adults permanently housed inside crowded buildings and on slatted concrete floors which their droppings go through. These environments causes these animals high levels of stress when they are alive.
The RSPCA Assured label and other schemes guarantees decent welfare standards which are decided on by scientific and veterinary officers with reference to the latest research on minimizing animal suffering.
Currently Manchester City uses suppliers whose standards do not require this and only requires meat to come from farms with minimum welfare standards. Compassion in World Farming Manchester believes that these minimum standards are not good enough. In this country we have many farms that are RSPCA Assured and have the best animal welfare standards in the world and so we can easily do better.
