Red Tractor has announced changes to its set of assurance standards following an industry-wide consultation.
Red Tractor, the UK’s largest food assurance scheme, has shared how it has listened to feedback and outlined that revised farm standards will be in place from November 1st 2021.
This year for the first time in its history, Red Tractor opened the process to its 46,000 members and the entire food supply chain, making it the largest consultation ever undertaken by Red Tractor. The proposals sought to engage as many people as possible across the Red Tractor supply chain to streamline standards; comply with legislation; meet changes in consumer demand; and provide clarity for both farmers and their assessors.

“We set out to hear from all stakeholders and to engage as much of the farming community as possible, and I’m delighted by the amount of feedback that was generated by the review. This has been enormously helpful for informing the work to finalise the new version of the standards.”
