Do you use steroids or artificial hormones on the cows used for your beef products?

May 21, 2018

No, we don't. The use of hormonal growth promoters for cows is banned in the U.K. and rest of the European Union. The beef used across our menu is 100% British and Irish, and comes from farms accredited by a national farm assurance scheme like Red Tractor. These schemes carry out regular independent audits to ensure that farmers meet industry standards for animal health, welfare and food safety. You can find more information on our animal welfare practices.
