OUR COMMITMENT TO A BETTER FOOD SYSTEM
Local Kitchen and Wine Merchant is working to create a better food system for all, and that includes farm animals too. That’s why we are committed to sourcing all 100% of our meat and poultry from farms that achieve an animal welfare certification recognized by Eat REAL and the ASPCA® Shop With Your Heart program by 2021.
Furthermore, by 2024, we will source only chicken certified by Global Animal Partnership (GAP) or another third-party auditing animal welfare certification program that meets or betters GAP’s standards for broiler breeds and rearing conditions (including lighting, litter, space, and enrichment). We will also make sure that our birds are processed in a system that utilizes a pre-shackle multi-step controlled-atmosphere processing system that’s widely hailed as more humane.
