They are among the newest producers and farmers to join the Certified Humane(R) 
program, which requires farmers to adhere to HFAC's Animal Care Standards and 
undergo third-party inspections to confirm compliance for consumers.

Among other things, HFAC's Animal Care Standards requires that:

    -- Farm animals be fed nutritious diets without antibiotics, growth 
       promoters and animal by-products, 
    -- Receive proper shelter, resting areas, and sufficient space to support 
       natural behaviors

Just like every other animal, farm animals, including chickens or laying hens, 
deserve to have their emotional and physical needs met and be raised in a way 
that allows them to express natural behaviors throughout their lives.

HFAC works to improve the lives of farm animals by driving consumer demand for 
kinder and more responsible farm animal practices. 

"With Certified Humane(R) label on the packaging of animal products the 
consumer in Southeast Asia can finally have a choice, and buy products from 
farms that care about the way animals are raised," says Luiz Mazzon, HFAC 
Director in charge of the regional operations. "With our new team of local 
inspectors we are able to perform inspections in farms from Thailand, Malaysia, 
Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, and all neighboring countries," says Luiz.

Certified Humane(R) products are currently available in 55,000 stores in many 
countries, including the US, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, 
Colombia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru and now Singapore and Malaysia.

Since HFAC launched in May 2003, more than 200 companies, representing 6,000 
farms and 1 billion farm animals, have joined the program. Endorsed by over 70 
animal welfare and humane societies, the Certified Humane(R) program is known 
worldwide for certifying farm animal welfare, from birth through slaughter.
