Making Great Food. Making A Difference.

Why Animal Well-Being is Important


One of our Core Values is to "serve as stewards of the animals, land and environment entrusted to us." Taking proper care of animals—treating them responsibly and with respect—is the right thing to do. It also makes great business sense. We’ve had a corporate office of animal well-being, currently led by Dr. Christine Daugherty, since 2000 and we are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to better serve the farmers who supply us poultry and livestock, as well as our customers and consumers.
