Thanks for visiting Global Animal Partnership (G.A.P.)! We are one of the largest farm animal welfare standards and labeling organizations in North America. We exist to positively impact the lives of millions of farm animals being raised for food each year. When you see the G.A.P. label on meat and pet products, you know that no antibiotics were ever used, no added growth hormones were administered, and the animal was fed an all-vegetarian diet free of animal by-products.
Being G.A.P. certified means the animals have:
A SAFE & ENRICHED ENVIRONMENT
ACCESS TO PASTURE OR OUTDOORS
(STEPS 3 & ABOVE)
A HEALTHY, VEGETARIAN DIET
(NO ANIMAL BY-PRODUCTS)
NO ADDED HORMONES OR ANTIBIOTICS
Our tiered labeling program allows for continuous improvement on farm. The higher the number (or “step”) printed on the label, the more the animal’s environment mimics a natural environment.
