The 88th Academy Awards honored the best films of 2015, but not before Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC), the leading international non-profit certification organization improving the lives of millions of farm animals in food production, steps up to the stage to shine a spotlight on a few retail superstars that are making a difference in the lives of farm animals.
HFAC believes the best way to help farm animals is through the marketplace. Every year, they give an “Oscar” nod to those retailers that show their commitment to animal welfare by selling Certified Humane® products in their stores.
So without further ado, the Oscar goes to…..the following local businesses among others.
Best Performance in a Supporting Role Safeway Inc.
Safeway, another 3-time winner in this category continues to show their support for cage-free eggs. They are the only major grocery retailer in the U.S. to require all of its eggs not just be cage-free, but Certified Humane® cage-free – in all of their stores. Safeway sets the bar high for other grocery retailers.
Most Committed Pet Food Retailer Wylie Wagg
Wylie Wagg operates a group of stores in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, selling all available varieties of Certified Humane pet food and snacks. That’s something to bark and meow about!
