Welcome to M&S
|Eggs||We sell 100% free-range eggs, both fresh shell and as an ingredient in our prepared products. Find out more about our approach to sourcing eggs.|
|Turkeys, geese and ducks||All our fresh whole turkeys and ducks are produced to higher welfare standards including increased space and enrichment provision. All M&S geese are free range and we do not sell foie-gras or its by-products. Find out more about our approach to sourcing poultry.|

|Dairy||All farms in our M&S Milk Pool are RSPCA Assured. All herds supplying us with fresh milk follow an enhanced health and welfare programme, which is audited by a specialist veterinary surgeon each year. Find out more about our approach to dairy.|

|Fish and shellfish|
We’ve developed our own standards for the sourcing of farmed fish and fish feed.
We aim to source wild-caught fish from the most responsible sources available. We recognise that we have a greater influence over animal welfare in a farmed fish environment, but we also seek to apply relevant welfare criteria in wild capture environments. Find out more about our approach to sourcing fish and shellfish.
All direct suppliers of meat, poultry, dairy and fish – a total of 18 direct suppliers – are required to participate in the Agricultural Scorecard process. 78% of suppliers have achieved Silver or above. An overview of supplier performance for 2016/17 is as follows:
|Global supply chain measures (fresh & ingredient)||2015/16||2016/17|
|Percent (%) animals (excluding fin fish) in M&S supply chain transported within specified maximum journey times (i.e. 8 hours or less)||100||100|
|Percent (%) animals (including fin fish) in M&S supply chain pre-stunned prior to slaughter||100||100|
