G.A.P.’s Animal Welfare Certified food labeling program also means that animals are raised without the use of antibiotics, added hormones, or animal by-products. The higher the number, the more the animal’s environment mimics its natural environment.

From Farm to Fork,
the label you can trust.

G.A.P. Partner Spotlight Mosner Family Brands

Time to honor another G.A.P. Animal Welfare Certified partner --Mosner Family Brands one of our G.A.P. Certified pork producers. Mosner Family Brands (MFB) was founded by David Mosner, a veteran of New York City’s Meatpacking District. He established MFB in 1957 in Bronx, New York and became a founding shareholder of the world’s largest food distribution center, Hunts Point Cooperative Market. David’s sons, Michael and Philip, joined their father in the early 1980’s and continued to diversify the company’s product offerings and customer-centric approach. Now in its third generation of family management, with the addition of Ben, Seth, and Jessica Mosner, MFB has dedicated itself to the local food movement and has prioritized animal welfare and sustainability as a core tenant of their business.

Mosner Family Brands works with a network of small family farms in New York, Pennsylvania, and New England, all of which raise heritage (Duroc) breed pigs using sustainable methods. All of MFB’s pork programs are G.A.P. Certified to meet our Enriched Environment / Step 2 animal welfare standards. This means the pigs are raised with lots of space and deep bedding to encourage foraging behaviors. There are never any crates or confinements of any type, and the animals were fed an all-vegetarian diet with no antibiotics and no growth hormones.

You can purchase Mosner pork products directly from their website https://mfbny.com/. Thank you Mosner Family Brands for your commitment to family farms and better animal welfare practices. We are proud to call you a G.A.P. partner!
