Restaurants and fast-food outlets using products that guarantee the welfare of animals are being asked to step forward and enter this year's RSPCA Good Business Awards.
The deadline for entries is 29 June and the award ceremony will be held at London's Natural History Museum on 11 October.
Entries will be judged by an independent panel of industry experts including BBC journalist Richard Johnson and British Retail Consortium food policy director Andrew Opie.
RSPCA head of external affairs David Bowles said: "Many companies are applauded for their environmental and fair trade policies, and now it's time to celebrate those that strive to improve animal welfare.
"Whether your restaurant is large or small, the RSPCA Good Business Awards acknowledge and promote those that go the extra mile to include animal welfare as part of their ethical business policy."
