GAP Species: Egg-Laying Hens
GAP Species: Egg-Laying Hens

Egg production systems vary significantly depending on where they are located. For example, our Base Certification and Enriched Environment certification levels are primarily indoor systems, whereas the laying hens in the higher tiers are raised outdoors. That’s why our program supports continuous improvement, and is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ model. As with all of the animals in the GAP program, our third-party certifiers audit every farm, every 15 months to ensure our standards are being met.
