Oh, and we’re Eat REAL® Platinum certified!

It is important to us at Fare Resources to support farms that are transparent and treat animals right and we are working with our suppliers to do just that. By 2021, Fare Resources will procure 100% of all our animal products from laying hens, broiler chickens, turkeys, pigs, beef and dairy cattle from ranches and farms that achieve an animal welfare certification recognized by REAL Certified and ASPCA® Shop With Your Heart. The welfare of broiler chickens, in particular is a growing concern, and we are eager to participate in making a better system possible for birds.

As such, by 2021, 100% of our chicken will be sourced from farms with standards that meet or better Global Animal Partnership’s (GAP) standards for broiler breeds and rearing conditions (including lighting, litter, enrichment and stocking density.) We will also make sure that our birds are processed in a system that utilizes a pre-shackle multi-step controlled-atmosphere processing system that’s widely hailed as more humane. The requirements above are important for addressing animal welfare and compliance will be demonstrated via third party auditing.
