American Humane Certified to Launch Online Training of Humane Animal Care for Food Producers

CDC Global Services Inc., which developed the web-based data-reporting components for American Humane Certified’s True Humane Tracking(TM) auditing process, will develop technical aspects of the online learning system. The online video components will be provided by HS3 Technologies Inc., developer of the live, online video monitoring for American Humane’s unique auditing process.

American Humane Certified is the nation’s oldest and fastest growing animal welfare certification program, with more than 50 million farm animals now covered. The program’s True Humane Tracking(TM) system is a proprietary, three-tiered audit system. This state-of-the-art method delivers transparency, accountability and consistency to producers, retailers and consumers. Producers who successfully comply are allowed to use and promote the American Humane Certified label on their products, attesting to the humane animal care that consumers are demanding along with other sustainable farming practices.

For large food-service companies, the training will illustrate a significant, socially responsible undertaking, especially as they require their employees and independent suppliers and growers to be trained in humane care and animal welfare standards. Other users likely will include universities and government agencies dealing with agriculture, such as the Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
