COM­PA­NIES across Peter­bor­ough are in­vited to en­ter an an­i­mal char­ity’s Good Busi­ness Awards.

The RSPCA is call­ing for eth­i­cally minded com­pa­nies in Peter­bor­ough to en­ter the 2010 awards which recog­nise eth­i­cal busi­ness ap­proaches to an­i­mal wel­fare in the food and fashion in­dus­tries.

RSPCA head of ex­ter­nal af­fairs David Bowles said: “We want to re­ward the ef­forts be­ing made by com­pa­nies – both large and small – that go the ex­tra mile to pro­mote an­i­mal wel­fare and recog­nise that con­sumers haven’t left be­hind their val­ues in a quest for value.”

Last year’s win­ners for achiev­ing higher stan­dards of an­i­mal wel­fare in­cluded McDon­ald’s in the res­tau­rant chain cat­e­gory – recog­nised for its im­proved an­i­mal wel­fare poli­cies – and the Res­tau­rant Ali­men­tum, in Cam­bridge, which won best in­de­pen­dent res­tau­rant.

Food judge Richard John­son said: “Cus­tomers want to feel as­sured that the re­tail­ers from who they buy from con­tinue to make be­ing an­i­mal-friendly easy by us­ing sup­pli­ers that rear their an­i­mals hu­manely.”
