Meat Standards that Exceed the Standard
Shopping for meat and meat products shouldn’t be a guessing game. In our meat department, you can count on high standards for the quality and sourcing of everything from fresh ground beef to frozen gluten-free chicken nuggets. In addition to everyday basics, you might find goose, duck, pheasant, Cornish hens, quail or goat in our stores. No matter what you choose, we’ve got standards like nowhere else.
Leading the Herd with Farm Animal Welfare
Long before you pick up a steak or chicken breasts at our meat counter, our farmer and rancher partners were caring for the animals. Those farms and ranches are audited regularly to ensure our standards for how the animals were raised. Beyond labels such as free range, pasture raised, local or heritage, our animal-welfare standards apply to everything in our meat department, so you can shop with confidence.
A Step Above: 5-Step® Animal Welfare
For fresh chicken, beef, pork and turkey at our meat counter, we require additional animal-welfare standards, adhering to the Global Animal Partnership 5-Step® Animal Welfare Rating. Third-party certified, and traceable back to the source, each item displays its rating right on the sign in the meat case.
