Global Animal Partnership: Animal Standards - Pork

Do you know where your pork comes from?

Have you ever been to a farm? Farms and ranches vary significantly depending on where they are located, so that’s why our program has Steps and is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ model. We allow room to grow and change how animals are raised within the program from Step 1 to Step 5+. We also use independent companies to audit the farms every 15-months, through different seasons.
