In November 2020 Ethical Consumer viewed the Princes website, www.princes.co.uk, and saw that the company sold a range of meat and fish products including canned fish, including tuna, and meat and meat pastes. The company therefore lost a whole mark under Animal Rights.
These products were not labelled as free range or organic so Ethical Consumer assumed that they were sourced from Factory Farming.
In a questionnaire sent to Ethical Consumer in January 2020, it stated that it had a commitment to cage free eggs only by 2025. It did not have any specific policies relating to dairy.
Princes therefore lost a whole mark under Factory Farming.
