More news on the celebrity chef front! For the last few months Ecorazzi has kept you abreast on all the chicken reform that’s taking place in the UK. Together, celebrity chefs Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall have worked hard to spotlight the plight of food animals and change the way chickens are treated. So to say thanks a million, the RSCPA presented the chefs with an award for their efforts earlier this week.
Jamie and Hugh have both been strong supporters of the RSPCA’s Freedom Foods scheme – an initiative that guarantees animals have been raised on farms that meet the organization’s standards. They’ve also both produced television documentaries to shed light on the truth about factory farming and help improve the welfare of animals.
Jamie and Hugh received the honors at the organization’s AGM in London earlier this week. A rep from the RSPCA said: “We are delighted to present both Hugh and Jamie with these awards in recognition of their valuable ongoing work in this area,” said Dr Marc Cooper, RSPCA senior farm animal scientist. “We look forward to carrying on our partnership with the chefs and hope that with their support, the revolution in raising chicken welfare standards throughout the UK will continue.”
Congrats and keep up the good work fellas!
