Animal Welfare Policy

Animal Welfare Policy

Fit Kitchen Limited (‘Fit Kitchen’) is committed to operating in a sustainable, responsible manner and to driving up animal welfare standards within the business and our suppliers, based on the five freedoms as defined by the Farm Animal Welfare Council;

  1. Freedom from hunger & thirst – by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain health and vigour.
  2. Freedom from discomfort – by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.
  3. Freedom from disease and injury – by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.
  4. Freedom to display normal behaviour – by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind.
  5. Freedom from fear and distress – by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.

We are also aware that our customers are increasingly concerned about how their food is sourced.

Chicken

Fit Kitchen is committed to improving chicken welfare standards and has signed up to the Better Chicken Commitment (BCC), thereby committing to meet or exceed the standards set out in the BCC by 2026 for 100% of the chicken in our UK supply chain.

We will review this Animal Welfare Policy on an annual basis.
