COMMITMENT TO ANIMAL WELFARE


At Boars Head Brand, we are committed to providing our customers with only the highest quality delicatessen foods. Nothing less. We use only the finest ingredients: many of our products using whole muscle beef, pork and poultry, and spices sourced from around the globe. Thats why Boars Head has been the deli brand trusted for over 110 years.

The topic of animal welfare is of great importance to us. Quality products come from quality ingredients, which we believe begins with the ethical treatment of animals. Although we do not operate farms or raise animals ourselves, we recognize the responsibility we have to promote the humane and respectful treatment of animals.

As part of our commitment, we collaborate with some of the countrys foremost animal welfare experts and carefully select suppliers who share a common goal of supporting animal health and well-being. We have stringent processes in place for all of our meat, poultry and dairy suppliers, including verification audits, annual reviews and third party audits and documentation. As the industry uncovers new and improved technologies and methods to further enhance animal well‐being, we work with our suppliers to continually drive advancements.

We support the globally recognized five freedoms for all animals in our supply chain:

  1. Freedom from hunger, thirst and malnutrition.
  2. Freedom from discomfort.
  3. Freedom from pain, injury and disease.
  4. Freedom from fear and distress.
  5. Freedom to engage in normal patterns of animal behavior.
