We are a distributor and bound to supply products demanded by our customers, and are required to ensure that there is adequate supply to meet consumer demand. UNFI is also committed to high quality and ethical standards. As part of this commitment, UNFI is requiring that its broiler chicken suppliers adhere to or exceed Global Animal Partnership animal welfare guidelines by 2024. Our guidelines will include providing cage-free and enhanced living spaces, transitioning strains of birds, multi-step controlled atmosphere processing and third party audits.
In addition, UNFI is committed to sourcing a 100% cage-free egg supply by 2018.
