The Food Emporium stores in New York and Connecticut are now carrying Certified Humane duBreton pork. The products are certified under Humane Farm Animal Care’s (HFAC) Certified Humane Raised and Handled program. All animals raised under the program were brought up in an environment with plenty of fresh water and a diet of quality feed containing no added antibiotics or hormones.
Rivière-du-Loup, Quebec-based duBreton, certified as a humane provider of pork products since 2004, offers case-ready bone-in, boneless pork chops, pork scaloppini, pork kebab cubes and baby back ribs.
Additionally, New City, N.Y.-based Murray’s Chicken, the first poultry processor in the United States to earn the Certified Humane designation for its chicken products, has been named the humane chicken brand of choice for all Food Emporium stores. Murray’s Chicken supplies an assortment of chicken products, including whole birds, boneless skinless chicken breasts, ground chicken burger and sausages. According to the grocer, a banner of Montvale, N.J.-based A&P, Murray’s whole chicken is the top-selling chicken item in its stores.
“As more consumers are demanding Certified Humane products, progressive supermarkets like Food Emporium are making them available for their customers,” noted Adele Douglass, CEO of Herndon, Va.-based Humane Farm Animal Care.
Other grocers that prominently feature Certified Humane products include D’Agostino Supermarkets and Heinen’s.
