Our USDA Process Verified Program for Responsibly Raised helps ensure compliance for the Perdue Poultry Welfare Program

Perdue Poultry Welfare Program

For barn-raised (excluding organic) chickens raised for the PERDUE®, PERDUE® HARVESTLAND® and PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® brands, we choose to raise poultry in cage-free, temperature-controlled housing with fresh-air ventilation. They are protected from the elements, disease and predators, and they are given constant access to food and water, sufficient room to move about exhibiting most natural behaviors, and periods of light and darkness. 

Audited and documented best practices, designated Poultry Welfare Officers for Perdue and Perdue Harvestland operations and veterinarians specializing in poultry, ensure the well-being of our chickens and turkeys. All producers and all associates who handle live poultry receive poultry welfare training.

All barn-raised chickens for the PERDUE®, PERDUE® HARVESTLAND® and PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® brands are covered by our USDA Process Verified Program for Responsibly Raised, which includes USDA audits of our hatcheries, farms and processing plants to ensure compliance to a welfare program that exceeds industry standards. Barn-raised (excluding organic) chickens raised for the COLEMAN® brand are from Global Animal Partnership certified farms rated GAP 2 or above.
