Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC)
The ASPCA supports the mission of Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC), which is to improve the lives of farm animals from birth through slaughter and to give consumers a humane choice in the marketplace. Humane Farm Animal Care, the first certification organization specifying animal welfare standards to be audited and approved by the United States Department of Agriculture/International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Guide 65 Assessment Program, has developed exhaustive standards for the rearing and handling of the animals, transport to market and slaughter practices. Producers who adhere to these standards are allowed to display the Certified Humane Raised and Handled label on their products. The ASPCA urges individuals who choose to consume animal products to purchase products that bear this label.
