They say this planet is what we all have in common. So we need to do our bit in saving it. Here’s how we’re making sure that animal welfare and sustainability remain two of our top priorities.
To us, animal welfare means more than nurturing our chickens with good food, clean water, and safe shelter. Animal welfare also means providing them with the freedom to comfortably move, perch, exercise, and mingle with other chickens. We take the health and nutrition of our animals seriously. Like training a professional athlete, every aspect of their diet is meticulously monitored. By treating our chickens with the same compassion and respect we give to people, we’re confident that the food we put on every family’s dining table is safe, healthy, and of the best quality.
To make sure that our standards for raising our meat chickens are best practice, we align our business with organisations whose key focus is on animal welfare. Ingham’s is proud to participate in the RSPCA Approved Farming Scheme as a Producer.

The RSPCA’s animal welfare Standard for meat chickens focus on providing a quality and enriched environment for birds, including lower stocking densities, litter management, air ventilation and access to perches. The Free Range Egg and Poultry Australia Ltd Standards promote a non-stressful environment for our birds with access to the outdoors.
We also adhere to the National Farm Biosecurity Manual for Poultry Production. This ensures our animals are healthy and disease-free. Our in-house feed mill operations and veterinarian teams oversee the health and welfare of our animals. These teams consult closely with our farming team to continually prioritise our animal’s welfare by ensuring they get the best quality nutritional meals.
