Pret A Manger Moves to 100% Higher Welfare British Chicken

Pret A Manger, the UK’s leading independent retailer of premium sandwiches, has become the first UK high street cafe brand to take all of its chicken from higher welfare sources supplied by British farms. The move applies across all 208 UK stores.

The higher welfare chickens, which are reared in Suffolk, enjoy 20% more space than the industry standard, with enriched environments designed to stimulate activity and promote natural behaviour.

“We’re always looking to do the right thing – and for us that means sourcing our ingredients within the UK wherever possible. We’ve been working hard with suppliers for some time to ensure sufficient higher welfare chicken is available in the UK,” comments Clive Schlee, chief executive of Pret A Manger.

Pret A Manger sells four sandwich types which include chicken, all of which will now include the British sourced meat. The company is majority owned by European private equity firm Bridgepoint Capital.
