Every food company with animal-derived products in its supply chain has an opportunity—and the responsibility—to make sure these intelligent, sentient beings are treated with compassion. More humane husbandry practices exist, and sourcing from better farms and ranches is possible. Purpose-driven procurement is a powerful tool for change!

Several companies have worked with the ASPCA to improve animal welfare in their supply chains, and create a more humane and sustainable farming system for all.

Latest announcements:

November 2021: Nugget's Healthy Eats - Great news for turkeys and cows! Nugget's Healthy Eats just implemented their commitment to turkeys a year before their goal, AND just made a commitment for cows! See their certified products here and their new commitment here.

November 2021: Campfire Treats - Exciting news! Campfire Treats just made a big commitment to ensure a more humane life for chickens. Read more about their promise here!

By 2024, all meals with beef, pork, turkey, lamb, chicken, and eggs will have a meaningful animal welfare certification by 2024. CookUnity has also made a progressive step for chickens and has joined the Better Chicken Commitment.
