Trends may come and go, but SPCA Certified food products are always a great choice.
“With fall weather upon us, our minds turn to seasonal foods like ham and pumpkin pie,” states Alyssa Bell Stoneman who supervises the SPCA Certified program. “SPCA Certified cheese, meats, poultry and eggs all pair wonderfully with local, fall foods.”
Recipe ideas include:
“One of my favourite things to do is spend time with family over a big breakfast,” states Bell Stoneman. “I suggest a hearty breakfast skillet made with sausages from Rondriso Farms; eggs from one of our farms like Bradner Farms, Rockweld Farm, Rabbit River Farms, or Sunworks Farm; and cheese from Little Qualicum Cheeseworks.”
SPCA Certified makes it easy to eat ethically year-round. Look through our list of other recipes using SPCA Certified products or the list of retailers and on-farm sales offering SPCA Certified products in your area.

About SPCA Certified:
SPCA Certified is a farm and food certification program that brings stakeholders together to further common goals in farm animal welfare.
Products come from farms annually assessed to BC SPCA farm animal welfare standards by trained inspectors, with certification determined by third party, independent reviewers.
SPCA Certified and certified organic farms are the only farming operations independently inspected for animal welfare practices by made-in-Canada programs.
The animal welfare standards incorporate current research in animal welfare science with practical protocols, as developed by an expert panel of animal welfare scientists, veterinarians, and farmers in consultation with the BC SPCA. Third-party certified farmers build their market share by branding their products for consumers with the red barn logo and communicating their innovative practices to the public.
The BC SPCA is a non-profit organization funded primarily by public donations. Our mission is to prevent cruelty and to promote the welfare of animals through a wide range of services, including cruelty investigations, emergency rescue and treatment, sheltering and adoption of homeless and abused animals, humane education, advocacy, farm animal welfare, spay/neuter programs, and wildlife rescue and rehabilitation.
