Certified Humane Raised, Handled Pet Food U.S. Bound


Humane Farm Animal Care, a nonprofit certification organization with a mission to improve the lives of farm animals, and Open Farm, a humane pet food brand headquartered in Toronto, are partnering to bring Open Farm HFAC-certified pet food to the U.S. in April 2015.

When Open Farm, which is already sold in Canada, makes its U.S. debut at Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Fla., it will become the first Certified Humane pet food available in the U.S.

To receive the Certified Humane label, Open Farm will use only meat and poultry products in its pet foods that come from Certified Humane farms and ranches, where animals enjoy a free-range existence, are humanely treated and raised without the use of animal byproducts or antibiotics.
