American Humane Certified: The Science Behind it
The American Humane Certified label is familiar to many consumers. The program was established in 2000 and is now applied to 15-20,000 American farms and ranches every year. Before that seal ends up in the grocery aisle, a comprehensive set of standards must be reviewed, put into action and audited. Over the past 20 years, American Humane has worked with dozens of scientists and auditors and thousands of producers to establish a set of best practices for raising farm animals that are founded in scientific research.
