Farmed rabbits - how can you help?

Ask your retailer

If you see rabbit meat for sale, please ask the retailer whether the rabbits that produced the meat were farmed and, if so, ask about the conditions in which they were reared.

In particular, you might like to ask about some of the key farmed rabbit welfare issues and ask what they are doing to try to ensure that these are avoided.

Choose higher welfare

If you buy farmed rabbit meat, please choose only meat from rabbits reared in higher welfare systems such as enriched group pens, and refuse to buy meat from rabbits that were reared in cages.

If more consumers insist on higher welfare products, more supermarkets will want to stock them, which will encourage more farmers to improve their farming practices and ultimately more farm animals will benefit.
