Question

EN: Does the brand abide progressive animal welfare standards for its entire assortment of chicken products?
NL: Voldoet het volledige assortiment kippenvlees aan vooruitstrevende normen voor diervriendelijkheid?
DE: Werden für das komplette Angebot an Hühnerprodukten progressive Tierschutzstandards eingehalten?

References

Broilers (meat chickens) are usually kept indoor in barns (so not in cages) in an intensive way, where 21 hens per square meter is common practice. Better practices in terms of animal welfare are again free range and organic poultry farming methods, providing much more space and fresh air.

Answering guidelines

For this question, brands can be awarded with a 'yes' only if:

- all the chicken meat at least meets the 1-star criteria of the Dutch animal protection association or a similar standard that clearly goes beyond common practices.
- all the chicken meat at least meets the 1-star criteria of the Tierschutzlabel or a similar standard that clearly goes beyond common practices.
- all the chicken meat at least meets the 1-star criteria of the Tierschutz-Gütesiegel by Vier Pfoten or a similar standard that clearly goes beyond common practices.
- all the chicken meat at least meets the criteria of the Pro Planet Label or a similar standard that clearly goes beyond common practices.
- free range and organic chicken meat is offered on the shelves (only resp. in addition to approved standards mentioned above).
