It all begins with food safety

Humane chicken farming not only ensures the biosecurity and welfare of chicken, but food safety, quality assurance, environmental stewardship and high quality packaging to extend the shelf life of chicken. 

Much of this work begins with certifications that are gauges for biosecurity, food safety and ethical practices. Certifications are also guarantees that poultry products are growth hormone-free, antibiotic-free, food additive-free, non-GMO and more. Many of these certifications are upheld at the national level in Romania and in line with EU directives.
