Getting certified

More providers becoming certified means more animals receiving a higher standard of care.

SPCA Certified members

SPCA Certified Farmed Animal members have over 25 million animals under their care. Brands under our programme include meat chicken brands Ingham's, Tegel, Waitoa, Bostock Brothers, Rangiteki and Macro (Woolworths' home brand); layer hen farmers Ewing Poultry, Wholesome Eggs, NZ Eggs Group and Better Eggs & Henergy; dairy sheep farmers Fernglen; pig farmers Patoa Farms; beef and sheep farmer Nurture Farming.

In 2022, The Coffee Club joined the SPCA Certified family as the first café chain in New Zealand to use only SPCA Certified eggs in all menu items.

Early 2024, Central Bark Dog Daycare in Auckland joined the SPCA Certified family.

Every one of our members has committed to advancing animal welfare for the animals in their care.

As consumer awareness grows, the SPCA Certified team are hoping more and more farmers and pet care businesses will see the benefits of joining the initiative.
