Did you know that all of our G.A.P. animal welfare standards are published on our website? When we create or modify a standard, it is also available on our site for public comment before being finalized. This transparency is important to us. We also form technical working groups when establishing or evolving a standard, and we leverage the expertise of our Scientific Advisory Committee to make sure our reasoning is sound and our standards have practical application on-farm. Rigorous and comprehensive standards based on animal behavior research is what we always strive for.

We suggest cooking a couple of whole chickens and using them for meal prep for the whole week. Roasted chicken and veggies for dinner, chicken salad for lunch, chicken enchiladas for another weeknight dinner, chicken quesadillas, and the list goes on and on. Just don't forget to #MakeitGAP!
