ANIMAL WELFARE CERTIFICATION LABEL GUIDE
It can be difficult to differentiate between food produced by sustainable farmers using humane practices, and corporate agribusinesses greenwashing their products because the current rules on food labeling leave a lot of room for vague claims.
For example “Pasture Raised,” suggest certain practices were used or standards were met, but do not guarantee it, or words such as “natural” have ceased to have any true meaning. “USDA Organic Certification” or “Animal Welfare Approved” on the other hand are clear indications that the food has been certified to meet certain requirements.
The labels in this guide are trustworthy and carried out by an accredited certifying organization. By clicking on the actual label here you can find out what they mean and stand for.
