Animal Welfare Approved
Service Provider in Alexandria, Virginia
Animal Welfare Approved (AWA) is a food label for meat and dairy products that come from farm animals raised to the highest animal welfare and environmental standards. The program was founded in 2006 as a market-based solution to the growing consumer demand for meat, eggs and dairy products from animals treated with high welfare and managed with the environment in mind. As a program accredited to ISO guideline 65, you can trust in the AWA label while making food choices when you cant visit the farm yourself. AWA audits, certifies and supports independent family farmers raising their animals according to the highest animal welfare standards, outdoors on pasture or range. Called a badge of honor for farmers and the gold standard, AWA has come to be the most highly regarded food label when it comes to animal welfare, pasture-based farming, and sustainability.
