American Humane is committed to ensuring the safety, welfare and well-being of animals. For more than a hundred years American Humane has been first in promoting the welfare and safety of animals and strengthening the bond between animals and people. American Humane sets the gold standard as the most visionary and effective animal welfare organization in the nation.
American Humane created the first welfare certification program in the United States to help ensure the humane treatment of farm animals. The American Humane Certified™ program provides third-party, independent audits to help verify that certified producers’ care and handling of farm animals meet the science-based animal welfare standards of American Humane Association.
BRC – The British Retail Consortium is the leading trade association for UK retailing and was first introduced in 1998. Today, it’s now recognized as the global standard for food safety with over 17,000 BRC certified sites worldwide. This strict auditing process requires documented approval to ensure food quality and safety to the highest levels.
Global Traceable Down Standard – This certification ensures that all down has been sourced from respected animal welfare farms. The rigorous audit traces back to the hatchery where breeding programs start and follows its way through the whole supply chain. Many garment companies aspire to work with down sourced in this manner from farms in the USA.
