We currently source two types of fish for our menu, and both are rated ‘1-2’ (‘Fish to Eat’) on the Marine Conservation Society’s rating. The cod in our fish fingers is line- caught from sustainable Icelandic shoals. And the salmon in our breakfast poached egg pots and toasted sourdough muffins is from Wester Ross, Scotland’s oldest independent owner-operated salmon farm, where all the farming is done by hand.
The pork in our sausages is RSPCA assured certified and we use Red Tractor as a minimum meat-sourcing standard across our menu.
Our Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets are accredited to Red Tractor Plus. Red Tractor sourcing standards mean that our chickens are never caged and always have high-quality air on their farms. They have perchable space, hay bales and other peckable things to keep them stimulated.
We visit our chicken farms regularly and know that our chickens have plenty of room, daylight, and are well looked after. Red Tractor has a low carbon footprint, though increasing plant-based dishes on our menu will make our menu that much more sustainable.
If we work together as an industry, we can make improvements to chicken welfare that can become standard practice. We want to work with other restaurants and retailers to make these changes happen as soon as possible. We want to ensure all chickens have a guaranteed minimum access to natural light and even more room to move freely.
We’re committed to meeting the welfare standards set by the European Chicken Commitment for 100% of our chicken by 2026 throughout our European Supply Chain. We support the work that the Humane League has done in campaigning towards the European Chicken Commitment and encourage them to go even further and work with farmers to help them supply this product in a sustainable way that is also affordable to customers.
We work with and support the most sustainable suppliers and partners and we will continue to work with the Humane League to find a clear and transparent solution to the CO2 and sustainability impact the new method of chicken farming brings, as it becomes commercially available.
