1. Site Checks
Third-party auditors check on the farm for such things as animal access to food and water, as well as proper human-animal interaction and worker training.
2. Advisory Panel
An external Animal Welfare Advisory Panel has been established and includes experts in the fields of farm animal behavior, health, production and ethics. In addition to other responsibilities, the committee helps determine research priorities and reviews the audit program recommending any needed improvements.
We also support additional farm animal welfare research. With guidance from the advisory panel, we review existing research as well as fund and promote additional research that we believe will lead to continued improvements in animal raising methods.?
We are giving animal welfare our fullest attention. That’s why we have a special team within the company to oversee our efforts around animal welfare.
