Better Chicken Commitment Policy

The compassionate treatment of farm animals has always been incredibly important to us at The Honest Kitchen.

We continually strive to raise the bar across our product lines and we want to do even more to further formalize and cement our commitment to chicken welfare, which first began with the transition to free range chicken in our dehydrated diets, over a decade ago. That’s why we are joining the ASPCA® in a nationwide effort to improve the lives of animals.

Today, we're proud to formally make the Better Chicken Commitment as we continue to work toward further raising the bar for quality standards and responsible sourcing from farmers who care and who adhere to more humane husbandry practices. By 2024, we will source all our chickens from farms that have earned the Global Animal Partnership (GAP) certification and we will require that all our chickens are processed using a multi-step CAS processing system, which is widely considered more humane.
