Permalink Blue Apron Recognized for Animal-Welfare Commitment

The company Blue Apron was recognized at the 2018 Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards hosted by Compassion in World Farming for its commitment to using higher welfare chicken in its supply chain. Blue Apron is already using eggs from pasture-raised hens, pork raised without gestation crates, and 40% grass-fed beef. The company has also adopted policies on the use of antibiotics and growth promoters. Going forward, the company has pledged to use Certified Humane pork, more grass-fed beef, and broiler chickens that meet specified standards for production and processing.
