If you are conscious about what goes into your body and you have respect for all creatures great and small, you need to be on the lookout for this Certified Humane food label. This label that makes it easier for conscious consumers to choose egg, dairy, meat, or poultry products that were produced with the welfare of the animal in mind.
A team of veterinarians and animal scientists created the Animal Care Standards to ensure that farmers, producers, and processors keep their animals in conditions that meet high standards of animal care.
If you see a product with this "Certified Humane" label, you know that the animals:
- Were allowed to engage in natural behaviors.
- Had sufficient space, shelter, and gentle handling to limit stress.
- Had ample fresh water and a healthy diet without added hormones or antibiotics.
Humane Farm Animal Care is the independent non-profit organization that conducts regular inspections to make sure businesses are upholding these high standards.
