Proud to Join the Better Chicken Committment
Our ongoing responsibility to deliver high-quality proteins to our community of home consumers plays a large role in our mission, which is why we have long supported quality standards for farm animal welfare by using only chicken that is certified by Global Animal Partnership (GAP), in our Cafe Spice products.
To further our commitment, Cafe Spice is proud to support the growing animal welfare movement by adopting the Better Chicken Commitment, the leading policy for broiler chicken welfare. We will continue to source all of our chicken from farms that are GAP-certified and will commit to sourcing from GAP Certified farms that use CAS, a processing system widely hailed as more humane, by 2024.
We applaud our chicken suppliers who have progressively adopted improvements in animal raising systems and will transition to controlled atmosphere processing systems (CAS) at their facilities.
Global Animal Partnership (GAP) is an independent animal welfare certification recognized in the ASPCA® Shop With Your Heart program. Cafe Spice is honored to have our chicken and plant-based combo meals listed in the ASPCA's Shop With Your Heart Brand List.
Update: As of October 2021, we are sourcing 100% of our chicken from GAP Step 2-certified farms for all of our Cafe Spice meals, including handhelds; therefore, we will be meeting the Better Chicken Commitment housing standards on litter, lighting, enrichment, and space allowance. We will be in discussion with our chicken suppliers about breed and multi-stage CAS, and will report on our status by 2023 or earlier.
