WOBURN, Mass. – Dole & Bailey became the first food distributor to be Animal Welfare Approved (AWA). The certification verifies the company’s handling, processing and record-keeping procedures provide farm to-fork traceability.

“Transparency is one of our guiding principles and the AWA label verifies that we practice what we preach,” said Nancy Matheson-Burns, CEO. “It also assures our clients the products we sell are not only 100 percent traceable, but that sourcing through our company preserves the Northeast's agricultural legacy and supports the revitalization of healthy, sustainable farming. We look forward to bringing even more Certified AWA farms on board to meet the growing demand for verifiably sustainable products.”

Dole & Bailey is a leading processor, butcher and distributor of local meat and sustainable produce to chefs in the Northeast. The company sources sustainably raised livestock from Northeast Family Farms, a network of individual family-run farms. The company has been in operation since 1868.
