A 'Humane' Label: Central Valley Poultry Company Meets Strict Standards

Posted: Updated:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

Foster Farms on Monday announced that it has become one of the first major poultry producers to be certified as a humane facility.

The company's fresh chicken products have earned certification from American Humane Association. A label showing the company's certification will now be included on packaging.

In a news release, Foster Farms CEO Ron Foster said, "While the actual certification is a new development for us, our commitment to raising chickens humanely has always been important to our company.

"It is the right thing to do for our birds and we know that it is important to consumers," Foster said.

The company also dedicated its Foster Farms Poultry Education and Research Facility on California State University, Fresno campus on Monday.

The 16,320 square-foot research facility will be used as a unit in the college's Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences.

The building, which will house an eco-friendly research and training facility, was a gift to Fresno State from Foster Farms.

Fresno State contributed the engineering, design and construction of the facility and will also provide ongoing program support.
