Celebrating a decade of high-welfare, sustainable farming!
From humble beginnings in 2008, Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World (AGW) is now the leading animal welfare and sustainable label across North America. A recent report from the influential Hartman Group, a leading food and beverage market research company, reveals the Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW label has the highest impact on consumer purchasing behavior of any current food certification label! 

This dramatic market shift could not have happened without the farmers and ranchers who now embark on their 10th year of certification. These pioneers of sustainable agriculture have demonstrated enduring commitment and dedication to high-welfare, sustainable management, and played a vital role in communicating its benefits to consumers and farmers alike. Their continued success demonstrates the growing maturity of the market for sustainable food animal products–and the opportunities for the future!

These ground-breaking farmers are proud to certify their animals and verify their farming practices with AGW certifications, making verified sustainability a core part of their stories and businesses:

We heard you!
After years of feedback from our farmers, consumers and (deeply appreciated) donated marketing expertise, we’re excited to share the launch of our beautiful new AGW website! agreenerworld.org streamlines our previous websites into a one-stop shop for farmers and consumers, while better serving the needs of both. As you explore the website, we’d love to hear your feedback. Please let us know what you think–we’re always happy to hear from you!
A record for success
Whatever animal species you raise, the Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW standards require you maintain a range of different records. Records are not only important to prove compliance: they hold real value for your farm business and the management of your animals. Record keeping should not add greatly to your day’s work and once integrated in your management, will help with future decision making, improving farm productivity–and profits. Read the full article in the Spring/Summer 2018 issue on page 16 here.
