Evermore Pet Food announces it became the first commercially prepared food — for pets or humans — to achieve full Better Chicken Commitment (BCC) compliance.

The company said it achieved this by working with its partner, Mary’s Free Range Chicken, to exclusively use Global Animal Partnership (G.A.P.) Step 4 and Better Chicken Project (BCP)-certified Mary’s Heirloom Pasture-Raised Slow-Growth Chicken for its chicken recipe.

The BCC is a set of welfare standards for chickens used for meat, recognized by leading animal welfare organizations in North America and Europe. G.A.P. Step 4 certification indicates an animal is pasture-raised, and the BCP certification seal verifies the use of an approved chicken breeds.

“We’re proud to be the first pet food company to hit full BCC compliance, and it’s wild that we achieved this milestone before any commercially prepared human food companies,” said Alison Blumberg, Evermore cofounder and sourceress. “We have been actively trying to move to pasture-raised chicken since 2017, but it just wasn’t available at the volume we need. We’re grateful to the BCC for increasing awareness and demand for humanely raised chicken.”

G.A.P. certification is recognized by the ASPCA’s Shop With Your Heart program. Evermore is listed on the ASPCA's distinguished grocery list of higher welfare options and is a featured pet food in the ASPCA’s Higher-Welfare Pet Food Initiative that recognizes pet food brands for their commitments to sourcing from animal-welfare-certified farms and ranches.
