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.

Did you know that G.A.P.'s farm animal welfare standards prohibit confinements of any kind? G.A.P.'s base label certification for each species includes over 100+ requirements for raising the animal including no crates, cages, or confinements. For indoor production systems, we also have requirements around bedding, lighting, space, and air quality.

The G.A.P. label always means the animal was never given any antibiotics or added hormones, and was fed an all-vegetarian diet. But it means so much more than these "big 3" claims. When you see a label on a meat package or product stating "no antibiotics" or "no growth hormones", it doesn't tell you how the animal was raised. But when you see the G.A.P. label on a package, you know that the animal was raised to our comprehensive animal welfare standards. These days, we all want to know how our food was raised. Look for the G.A.P. Animal Welfare Certified label and feel good about the meat you eat.
