Bon Appétit Standards
- We buy chicken and turkey raised without non-therapeutic antibiotics.
- Our shell eggs (both shell and precracked/liquid) come from chickens raised cage-free and are certified by Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC), Food Alliance, or Animal Welfare Approved.
- Turkey is roasted in-house daily for deli meat.
In addition, Bon Appétit chefs regularly buy local, pasture-raised broiler chickens and eggs through our Farm to Fork program.
Future goals: Working with the animal welfare certification program Global Animal Partnership (GAP), we have committed to transforming the welfare of the broiler chickens within our supply chain. By 2024, all of Bon Appétit’s broiler chickens will be certified under GAP’s 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating program, including: the use of approved genetics for slower-growing strains; offering enrichments including hay bales, perches, and natural light; ensuring minimum space requirements (at least a square foot per 6 lbs); and utilizing Controlled Atmosphere Stunning to render them unconscious prior to shackling. Performance will be benchmarked annually and publicly reported.
