Broiler Chickens

Hormel Foods works closely and dialogues continuously with our partners who raise and supply the animals that are used in our products.. Through this dialogue, we have been able to implement pioneering procedures for controlled-atmosphere stunning and improved handling of turkeys, and adopt other advanced welfare positions.

We are engaged in ongoing discussions with internal and external stakeholders to make continuous improvements in the welfare of broiler chickens. Led by our Applegate team and as a purchaser of these raw materials, we encourage our suppliers to progressively adopt changes to animal raising systems that will ensure better welfare outcomes for broiler chickens. These improvements include transitions to enhanced enrichments in the growing environment, improved handling for live animals on farms and the implementation of controlled-atmosphere stunning systems at processing facilities.
