Certification and Assurance: RTA Chicken Scheme

Developed by the industry, this RTA scheme is designed to assess the ability of chicken producers, transporters and processors to comply with food safety requirements, animal welfare standards and demonstrate due diligence.

Certification to the Red Tractor Assurance Chicken Production Standard is now a fundamental requirement of all leading poultry marketing groups, primary processors, further processors and retailers.

The scheme covers Breeder Replacements; Breeder Layers; Hatchery, Chickens; Free Range; Poussin and Catching Transport & Slaughter.

Whole birds and portions produced under ACP standards are eligible to carry the Red Tractor logo.

Remember NSF Certification offers an integrated package where all farm enterprises can be assessed in one visit.
