[LINK] Humane Farm Animal Care Achieves ISO Accreditation
Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC), a non-profit organization that certifies
the humane treatment of animals raised by meat, poultry, egg or dairy
producers, has received accreditation under ISO Guide 65. This standard
specifies requirements for organizations operating third-party product
certification systems, verifying that the system is operated in a
consistent and reliable manner based on internationally recognized
methods, which facilitates their acceptance on a national and
international basis furthering international trade. HFAC is the first
certification body evaluated that applies and certifies animal welfare
standards.
