At SPAR, we’re proud that all our own-brand fresh chickens are born and reared in Britain.

On farms which exceed the quality assured standards set under the red tractor scheme. And our British supplier has a wealth of experience in poultry farming, sourcing feed for our flock from within Suffolk and Norfolk. 

All our farms are carefully selected to ensure our chickens are:

  • Housed on straw or wood shavings with a controlled maximum number of chickens per square metre
  • Fed a balanced diet to encourage healthy development.
  • Monitored several times daily by our farmers.

And SPAR’s higher welfare standards ensure our supplier limits the stress levels experienced by our chickens. The result? Better quality of life for our chickens, better quality products for our customers.

​Better quality of life for our chickens, better quality products for our customers.​

Moving to 100% cage-free by 2025.


SPAR has committed to this initiative to ensure sustainable sourcing, and improve animal welfare.

We are committed to moving 100% of our fresh eggs to cage-free hens by 2025.

Currently we provide customers with a range of shell eggs, all of which are Lion Quality Standard in the UK or Bord Bia Irish Food Board standard in Ireland.
