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.

Innovation is one of G.A.P.'s core values. We are always looking for ways to leverage technology to make the handling of animals raised to our standards more effective and efficient. That's why we've partnered with @herddogg, a technology partner who is helping G.A.P. develop a custom app for performing animal assessments in real-time on-farm. We are currently piloting the app with our new Dairy Standard and excited to understand the possibilities of incorporating the technology with more partners. Raising animals is a complex business. If technology can help both the farmer, the Certifier, AND the animal, we are all in.

Check out the recent press release announcing the G.A.P. / HerdDogg partnership.

In 2020, pet ownership rose to a new high -- 70% of households. Pets are truly a part of the family, don't you agree? If you 've been in a pet store lately, you've probably noticed the pet aisle is changing... for the better. We all care deeply about the food and treats we are feeding our pets and, today, there are more options than ever. Doesn't it make you feel good knowing that a growing number of pet brands are sourcing G.A.P. Animal Welfare Certified ingredients for their products? After all, ALL animals matter. Look for the G.A.P. Certified label when you shop for your pet. And check out our latest blog about the changes in pet food and why you should shop for brands raising the bar. >>>>>>>>>

Find yourself making the same recipes week in and week out? Time to mix it up... and spice it up! There's a new sauce in town - and it's called harissa. Find it in the international food section of your grocery store and you'll be glad you did. It's a fiery sauce made up of red chiles, garlic, citrus, and other spices. You can also search for a harissa sauce recipe (or paste) to make your own. Then, spread it under the skin of your favorite G.A.P. Animal Welfare Certified bone-in chicken pieces - we love thighs - and get ready for a dinner fiesta. Check out this recipe for an easy sheet pan dinner and make your grocery list! >>>>>>

G.A.P. exists to positively impact the lives of farm animals raised for food. G.A.P.'s detailed, comprehensive standards include requirements related to the animal's environment, diet, and overall management from birth to harvest.

The purpose of G.A.P.'s #BetterChickenProject is to better understand the impact of broiler chicken genetics on the animals' overall welfare, and how we can use this data to reinvent the modern day broiler. Breed is the final piece in the overall broiler chicken welfare puzzle. With our commitment to both continuous improvement and a science-based approach, we will be publishing our new broiler breed assessment protocol and revising our Broiler Chicken Standards in 2022 to include a growing list of acceptable breeds eligible for G.A.P. Animal Welfare Certification.

Check out our Better Chicken Project for more information and ongoing updates. https://globalanimalpartnership.org/better-chicken-project/

Did you know that chickens represent 90% of all farm animals processed for meat annually? That's a huge number. G.A.P. is working to get more farms into our program to positively impact the millions of chickens raised for food each year. Many companies have pledged their support for the Better Chicken Commitment, an initiative started by advocacy groups including @ASPCA and @ciwf to source G.A.P. Animal Welfare Certified chicken under our new breed and welfare standards. Generating demand through corporate commitments means that supply will come - supply in the form of more farms committed to G.A.P. animal welfare standards.

Change takes time and patience, but we are committed to reinventing the modern-day broiler to achieve better welfare outcomes for millions of chickens raised for food each year.
