TIP OF THE DAY: Certified Humane Raised & Handled Meat

Love animals? Buy meat that is Certified
Humane Raised & Handled.


If you care about animals yet eat meat and poultry, there’s an easy way to put your money where your steak is.

Look for meat with the Certified Humane Raised & Handled logo.

Humane Farm Animal Care is a national non-profit organization created to improve the lives of farm animals. It does so by setting rigorous standards, conducting annual inspections and certifying humane treatment of animals.

The Certified Humane Raised & Handled program was developed to ensure animal welfare. Producers, processors and transporters verify that their livestock and poultry meet high quality humane animal care standards.


A consumer benefit is that happy livestock tastes better.

  • The meat is more delicious because of the lack of stress placed on the animal. Stress hormones released by the endocrine system—especially at the final moments before butchering—negatively impact the flavor.
  • Animals that are well cared for typically have a better diet, which positively affects the flavor of the meat.
    Some restaurants specialize in Certified Humane Raised & Handled animals. They don’t have to be fancy restaurants: the New York Burger Company is an example.

  • Use the store locator to find out where you can purchase Certified Humane Raised & Handled meats.
  • See a list of restaurants carrying Certified Humane meat.
