TruBeef has met the high farm animal welfare standards of the Global Animal Partnership (G.A.P) which is proudly recognized by the The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
Our Organic beef farms have been verified as Animal Welfare Approved and Pasture-raised by independent third-party farm inspectors.
Other animal welfare bodies use a sample model and physically inspect only 10% of the farms, even though they certify all of them. The G.A.P. animal welfare program on the other hand is far more complete ~ All farms are inspected every 15 months in different seasons by independent 3rd party inspectors. This means every animal on every farm is assured the highest wellness standards and humane treatment.
To pass Step 4 certification, all our farms must pass strict standards on non-confinement, weaning, shelter / shade, access to water and forage, homeopathic and herbal treatment, air quality, sanitation, transport time, veterinary care and the calm professional movement of herds.
Our G.A.P. Step 4 certification also assures our customers, all livestock are Free-roaming / Not Confined and Pasture-raised outdoors.
Even during transport and butchering of your order, we must also adhere to strict chain of custody standards which ensures our GAP Step 4 beef does not come in contact with non-GAP meat at any time.
PROUD TO BE G.A.P. CERTIFIED
Global Animal Partnership (G.A.P.) is one of the largest farm animal welfare standards and labeling organizations in North America. G.A.P. creates animal welfare standards, TruBeef implements them and third-party Certifiers audit all of our farms to establish that we are G.A.P. Certified
G.A.P. ANIMAL WELFARE CERTIFIED MEANS
How it works
G.A.P. develops farm animal welfare standards that put the needs of the animals first.
Independent, third-party Certifiers audit every farm, every 15 months to ensure G.A.P. standards are being met.
Consumers look for the G.A.P. Animal Welfare Certified seal and good about their purchase, because it's the label they can trust.
