Welcome to the Red Tractor 2021 review hub

Start Date: 5th January 2021        End Date: 5th March 2021

Red Tractor was established 20 years ago to reassure consumers that food bearing its logo was safe and responsibly produced. Initially the focus was on food safety, animal welfare and environmental protection but as with all industries, demands change and the scheme has evolved to meet those demands.

This successful evolution has meant that Red Tractor has become the most trusted food assurance scheme,  many retailers, caterers and brands use Red Tractor as part of their buying specification. This provides farmers and growers with considerable market access, without needing to meet several differing standards and different audits.

However we cannot afford to be complacent, it’s vital that Red Tractor’s standards move with the times to ensure they address changes in legislation and best practice and also reflect emerging issues on consumer’s minds.

At a time of ever-increasing scrutiny, preserving the public’s trust in UK agriculture and the Red Tractor logo has never been more important.
In evolving our standards, we always strive to achieve the balance that protects and promotes our members, reassures customer and consumer, while balancing the implications of the challenges that the industry faces with future trade deals and the agricultural transition plan.

 The proposals have been developed following best practice recommend by the British Standards Institute.
The 3 step process is: Committee - Consultation - Consensus.
