A Greener World tops chart for high-welfare eggs
A Greener World’s most trusted farm certifications lead the industry, according to a recent higher animal welfare comparison chart released by Compassion In World Farming, a global farm animal welfare nonprofit.

Compassion in World Farming (CIWF) compared 34 certifications across 10 countries to assess whether they meet CIWF’s higher animal welfare criteria, analyzing each certification program on 15 metrics and animal welfare criteria–including access to pasture, spacing requirements for housing, animal breeds, ability for animals to exhibit natural behaviors, health and animal welfare monitoring programs, and more.

We are proud to be a label that delivers on its promise and thank CIWF for keeping the market honest. Read more here —
