G.A.P.’s Animal Welfare Certified label means that animals are raised without antibiotics or added hormones, and are fed a vegetarian diet with no animal by-products. The higher the number, the more the animal’s environment mimics its natural environment.

Learn More About Each Step

Improving the Lives of Farm Animals

G.A.P.’s comprehensive program positively impacts millions of farm animals every year. Being G.A.P. certified means the animals have:

MORE SPACE

A SAFE & ENRICHED ENVIRONMENT

ACCESS TO PASTURE OR OUTDOORS

(STEPS 3 & ABOVE)

A HEALTHY, VEGETARIAN DIET

(NO ANIMAL BY-PRODUCTS)

NO ADDED HORMONES OR ANTIBIOTICS

G.A.P. is the Label You Can Trust

With G.A.P., every farm is audited to gain certification. Some other animal welfare certification programs only audit a small sample of farms annually. We feel this level of integrity is necessary, especially when considering the lifecycle of raising live animals.

Global Animal Partnership Animal Welfare Certified Step 1

G.A.P. requires every farm to be audited every 15 months (through every season) in order to be certified.

G.A.P. Audits Every Farm Every 15 Months

Group Model Certification Programs

Only require that a small percentage (~10%) of farms be audited every 12 months, even though all of them will be “certified.”

Others only audit 10% of farms every 12 months

Small LighbulbThink about it: if you are only auditing a sample of farms annually, it may take up to 10 years to visit and score all farms in the system.
