Policy

Au Bon Pain intends to align its broiler chicken policy with standards of the Global Animal Partnership (GAP) and work with our suppliers to reach the following by 2024:

• Use of new broiler breeds recognized by GAP as having higher welfare outcomes
• Provide birds more space, reducing stocking density to a maximum of 6 lbs/sq ft per GAP standards
• Offer improved environments, including litter, lighting and enrichment per GAP standards
• Process chickens more humanely through a multi-step controlled atmospheric processing system
• Demonstrate compliance with the above standards via third party auditing
