G.A.P. remains committed to supporting our farm and supply chain partners as they cope with the increased demands on food supply resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

As businesses and communities are closing to promote social distancing and halt the spread of the virus, the G.A.P. team is also working remotely and, with the help of our Certifier partners, have suspended travel for auditors until further notice.

To support the integrity of our program and, in the spirit of full transparency to our stakeholders, we are working with our third-party Certifiers to conduct animal welfare audits remotely. Audits of existing G.A.P. Animal Welfare Certified partners as well as new partners would normally be conducted on-site at every farm seeking certification, but the COVID-19 outbreak has led us to allow our independent certifiers to conduct these assessments remotely through alternative mechanisms such as desk audits, with digital proof to support compliance. We are also exploring the use of technology to complete audits and renewals to remotely monitor the animals and their environment.

As always, we remain committed to supporting our partners through these challenging times. If you’re looking for online options for groceries, we ask that you continue to support our farm and brand partners who sell G.A.P. Animal Welfare Certified products online and deliver directly to your door.
