The Better Chicken Commitment (BCC) is a set of welfare-driven criteria established to improve the lives of chickens raised for meat. This commitment focuses on key areas such as providing more space, enriching environments, and using slower-growing chicken breeds to enhance their overall well-being.

Evermore Pet Food's dedication to higher-welfare sourcing

Evermore Pet Food's journey toward BCC compliance is detailed in its sourcing story. The story provides transparency into Evermore's sourcing practices, highlighting their dedication to responsible and humane chicken sourcing. Evermore first officially committed to the BCC in 2022, and achieved 100% compliance in just over a year.

We are excited to continue to support and collaborate with Evermore on animal welfare and sustainability initiatives.”
