It's Farm Animal Awareness Week. At G.A.P., our vision is a world where farm animals are treated with compassion, managed to a science-based standard, and permitted to express their natural behavior.... AND a world where consumers are empowered to make informed purchasing decisions based on transparent animal welfare criteria and labeling. Help us impact the lives of farm animals by looking for the G.A.P. Animal Welfare Certified label when you shop. #MakeitGAP #FarmAnimalAwarenessWeek

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.

It's National Chicken Month! Did you know that chicken is the most popular meat consumed globally? Chickens also make up a majority of the 416 million animals raised to G.A.P.'s animal welfare standards annually.

Did you also know that G.A.P. is working to reinvent the modern-day broiler chicken? We commissioned the largest broiler chicken welfare study ever conducted, and now we're using the data to establish a list of breeds that will become a part of our broiler chicken standards.

Did you know G.A.P. includes barn cat care in our standards? Neglect of all animals is prohibited in our standards, and we even have specific requirements in our higher steps around barn cat physical health and care. ❤️

Did you know that G.A.P.'s pig standards prohibit the use of cages and confinements at all levels of certification? Pigs raised to our standards have minimum space requirements as well as bedding requirements when they are raised indoors.

We also have specific requirements for farrowing sows (pregnant female pigs) that require the mama pig to have sufficient bedding materials to build her nest before giving birth, as well as lots of space to build it. If you live in California and have heard about 'Proposition 12' on the news, please know that G.A.P. standards meet those requirements and more. Whenever you see the G.A.P. Animal Welfare Certified label, you know that the animal was raised in an environment with no cages or crowding and meets Prop 12 regulations (set to go into effect in January 2022).
