Just last week, at our Dinner and a Movie event, we screened a film about Temple Grandin and talked about the importance of treating animals humanely. Ed Wilsey joined us to give us his perspective on raising animals. He mentioned he was certified though the Global Animal Partnership . Global Animal Partnership is a non-profit alliance of producers, retailers, animal advocates and scientists dedicated to improving farm animal welfarethrough the 5-Step® Animal Welfare Rating Program. They facilitate continuous improvement in farm animal agriculture across the world through their 5-Step® animal welfare standards and third-party certification.

They work to empower consumers so they can make informed purchasing decisions.
