Boston based restaurant Tasty Burger becomes Certified Humane®

The restaurant was started by four partners, Phil Audino, Maureen “Mo” McLaughlin, Brian Reyelt, and David Dubois, who had been in the restaurant business for decades, mostly as chefs. Their concept was a restaurant that contrasted with the national burger chains, and provided high quality ingredients, reasonable prices, and a connection with the community.  Thus, Tasty Burger was born: a modern version of the 1950’s burger joint, with fresh, high quality American fare in an eclectic and unique atmosphere.

Tasty Burger switched to Certified Humane® beef burgers after the partners took a trip to Kansas to find out where their beef was coming from. “After that experience, we knew we need to find an alternative, and Certified Humane® was the natural choice,” said David Dubois. “Becoming a Certified Humane® restaurant helps us to support the farmers that are doing the right thing, and helps us achieve our goal of caring about our food supply and our patrons.”

HFAC’s Certified Humane® designation assures consumers that meat, poultry, egg, or dairy products they purchase have been produced according to HFAC’s precise standards for humane farm animal treatment. Supported by more than 44 humane organizations, the Certified Humane Raised and Handled® program is nationally recognized as the Gold Standard for certifying animal welfare from birth through slaughter.  Since the program was unveiled in May 2003, more than 93 companies, representing thousands of farms and millions of farm animals, have been certified.

HFAC’s Animal Care Standards were developed by a veritable “Who’s Who” of national and international animal scientists and farm-animal welfare experts. Producer compliance with the HFAC standards is verified through annual on-site visits by HFAC’s third-party inspectors.

Tasty Burger now has three locations, all serving Certified Humane® beef burgers: Fenway, Southie, and the brand new location in Cambridge.  For more information about Tasty Burger, visit their website at
