One Health Certified™

Responsible Animal Care for Today and Tomorrow

Existing food labels are often confusing and narrowly focused. One Health Certified™ is a food animal certification program that recognizes that the health of humans, animals, and the environment are inseparable. This multi-protein label addresses important consumer concerns about how animals are raised and takes the guesswork out of food shopping for consumers.

The One Health Certified™ food animal certification program provides transparent standards which create a comprehensive and sustainable animal care program for participating farmers to follow. Scientific research and experience drive updates to this evolving program which ensures best responsible animal care practices for today and tomorrow. Compliance with the program is verified by annual audits conducted by the United States Department of Agriculture Agricultural Marketing Service (USDA-AMS) Process Verified Program.
