The App uses GPS to identify nearby retailers and displays them in an interactive map; the users can also search for specific locations as well. In addition to finding mainstream supermarkets that sell Certified Humane(R) products, users can also find farmers and ranchers that sell directly to consumers using the “BUY ONLINE” button. For restaurants and other food service providers who want to sell Certified Humane(R) products, there is a filter option to find wholesale distributors.
Endorsed by more than 44 humane organizations, the Certified Humane Raised and Handled(R) program is nationally recognized as the Gold Standard for certifying animal welfare from birth through slaughter. HFAC’s Animal Care Standards were developed by a veritable “Whos Who” of national and international animal scientists and farm-animal welfare experts. Producer compliance with the HFAC standards is verified through annual on-site visits by HFAC’s third-party inspectors.
