Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC), the leading international non-profit certification organization improving the lives of millions of farm animals in food production, announces this week that Open Farm will be the first producer of Certified Humane® Raised and Handled® dry dog food in the U.S.

Open Farm, a Canadian-based pet food company, launched their Certified Humane® dog food products in stores across Canada in late 2014. Now the first ethically-sourced dry dog food to receive the Certified Humane® label is available in the US.

«Since Humane Farm Animal Care launched in 2003, pet owners have been clamoring for pet foods with meat and chicken that were Certified Humane®», said Douglass. «This is our first major pet food company and we’re excited to see such a product finally hit the marketplace. It will give U.S. pet owners the opportunity to purchase pet food that reflects their humane values».   Under the Certified Humane® label, Open Farm will use only meat and poultry products in their pet foods that come from Certified Humane® farms and ranches.

The Certified Humane® label assures consumers that farm animals are raised on farms where they can express their natural behaviors, such as flapping wings and moving around freely in their environments. The farm animals also must also be raised without antibiotics or growth hormones and must not be feed animal by-products.

Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC) is the leading international non-profit certification organization improving the lives of farm animals in food production. The Certified Humane® designation assures consumers that meat, poultry, egg, or dairy products they purchase have been produced according to HFAC’s precise standards for humane farm animal treatment.

Animals must receive a nutritious diet without antibiotics or hormones and must be raised with shelter, resting areas and space sufficient to support natural behavior. Since the HFAC program was unveiled in May 2003, more than 110 companies, representing thousands of farms and millions of farm animals, have been certified.
