Casual Dining Group understands the importance of good animal welfare standards. We work in close partnership with our suppliers to ensure our animal welfare policy and its requirements are followed at all times.
We source eggs for our kitchens from the UK and these are all free range and produced to the UK Lion Mark, which guarantees high standards of food safety and traceability. Suppliers of eggs used as ingredients such as bakery products comply with all EU and UK legislation on the welfare of laying hens and the use of enrichment systems.
In addition, they also comply with independent accreditation standards (such as ISO 14001) and farm assurance, which are equally important to us. As with many other food companies and restaurant groups, we continually seek, and listen to, advice from welfare organisations, independent experts and supply partners as to the best approach in moving to ever-higher standards and welfare systems.
