Animal Welfare

Farm-animal welfare is an important part of a trusted partnership with producers, as well as the farm-to-table transparency and quality that you expect from us. We have strong standards for animal welfare across our meat department, including Global Animal Partnership’s 5-Step® Animal Welfare Rating for beef, pork, chicken and turkey in our fresh meat case.

Farm Animal Welfare
When it comes to knowing where your food comes from, we know more than most grocers. Throughout our meat department we not only have standards for the freshness and quality of our meat and poultry, we have standards for how the animals are raised. That includes no antibiotics, ever, and no added growth hormones.

5-Step® Animal Welfare Rating
If you’re concerned about how farm animals are raised, the Global Animal Partnership 5-Step® Animal Welfare Rating considers specific factors in the care and handling of animals. We require their ratings on all of the beef, pork, chicken and turkey in our fresh meat case, and look forward to standards for additional species as they become available.
