Gressingham achieves Red tractor Standard

Gressingham, the award winning family business is delighted to announce it has been awarded Red Tractor Assurance for its Gressingham Duck.  Red Tractor is a food assurance scheme which covers production standards developed by experts on food safety, hygiene, animal welfare and the environment.

With the award of the Red Tractor Assurance, Gressingham continues the family’s objectives of being the leading producer of duck and speciality poultry in the UK, adding to the Freedom Foods certification achieved for some of their farms for nearly a decade.

William Buchanan, Managing Director of Gressingham, said: “We are proud that Gressingham Duck is now Red Tractor Assured. We have invested significantly in the welfare of our ducks in recent years and this accreditation endorses the high quality standards we strive to achieve for our ducks. As a family business that has been going for 40 years it is incredibly important for us to keep improving in every area of what we do and Red Tractor Assurance is affirmation of this.” David Clarke, CEO of Red Tractor said: “We are delighted that Gressingham Duck is using the Red Tractor logo to demonstrate their commitment to quality food and farming. This move will mean that consumers, for the first time ever, will be able to buy Red Tractor approved duck”. Gressingham supply ducks for the retail and food service sectors and the Red Tractor endorsement will help demonstrate the good standards the company follows from farm to pack.

The Red Tractor scheme was established by UK farmers, food producers and retailers working together to make sure that the food that you buy meets the standards that you expect for you and your family. The scheme was launched by the Prime Minister on 13 June 2000. All suppliers in the Red Tractor food chain are inspected and certified by an independent professional body. The Red Tractor certifies that food has been produced to independently inspected standards right across the food chain – from farm to pack.
