*Shopping at Whole Foods Market 

Almost all of the beef, chicken, pork and turkey sold in Whole Foods Market stores is Global Animal Partnership certified and labeled. To ensure that the product came from animals that led better lives, we advise only buying products bearing the GAP (Step 2 and above) logo. Some brands that bear the GAP label at Whole Foods Market will appear in other stores without the logo. That may be a packaging choice or it may mean that those animals were not raised to the GAP standards.

AWA and GAP Step 4-5+ currently require the use of chicken breeds that have higher welfare than industrial breeds, which can suffer due to their genetics. As of 2024, Shop With Your Heart will only recognize chicken-welfare certifications and brands that require better breeds.
