Effective 2017, we are requiring our suppliers to take the following actions for 100% of our chicken supply by 2024, or sooner if possible:
Meet the Global Animal Partnership (GAP) maximum stocking density standard of <6 pounds per square feet.
Provide chickens with enriched environments including natural light, litter, hay bales and perches that meet GAP standards.
Use GAP approved genetic strains for slower-growing chickens.
Render chickens unconscious prior to shackling using Controlled or Low Atmospheric Stunning that is widely hailed as humane.
Demonstrate compliance with the above standards via a third-party auditing system.
We are committed to purchasing only cage-free shell and liquid pre-cracked eggs by 2020 . We are on target to fulfill this commitment.
We are committed to sourcing milk that is local and free of added growth hormones.
We purchase sustainable seafood that follows the Marine Stewardship Council’s guidelines and recommendations.
