It starts with Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken. Locally grown with no antibiotics ever. Food we’re comfortable eating, making and serving. It’s time to get comfortable with our food again.
Foster Farms® fresh chicken is independently audited and certified by the American Humane Association. We also follow the animal welfare guidelines set forth by the National Chicken Council and the National Turkey Federation and have been instrumental in helping to advance animal welfare in the poultry industry.
Foster Farms is audited numerous times each year by independent third-party auditors at the request of retailers and food service customers to ensure animal welfare standards. The audits take place at the company’s hatchery, ranches and processing facilities.
Foster Farms’ employee animal welfare training program is one of the most comprehensive in the poultry industry. Employees are required to abide by the company’s animal welfare policies and any inappropriate treatment of the birds we raise can result in termination.
As a best practice, Foster Farms is committed to continuous improvement of its animal welfare program and consults with an Animal Welfare Advisory Board consisting of leading academic experts in the field.
