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.

Global Animal Partnership is the label you can trust. With G.A.P., every farm is audited to gain certification. Some other animal welfare certification programs only audit a small sample of farms annually. We feel this level of integrity is necessary, especially when considering the lifecycle of raising live animals.
