Katie’s Best takes animal welfare very seriously. We work with and adhere to the Global Animal Partnership (GAP) standards and have since the program began. All of our chickens are raised to Step 2 standards. We also allow our organic chickens outdoor access. We believe in taking animal welfare a step further and allowing our birds to have more natural light than required, more space per bird in barns, and outdoor access in organic barns.
In addition, we believe in the Five Freedoms: freedom from hunger and thirst; freedom from discomfort; freedom from pain, injury, and disease; freedom to express natural behavior; and freedom from fear and distress.
Animal welfare is not just something we do, but is ingrained into who we are as a company.
