WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Raley’s, a California supermarket chain, is partnering with American Homestead Pork to ensure all pork sold in its stores is non-GMO and antibiotic-free.

American Homestead is a group of 35 family farms in Iowa that raise Hampshire breeding stock for pork. Their animals are never given antibiotics or growth promotants and are kept cage-free in open spaces. They feed on non-GMO vegetables and grains.

“We take our customers’ needs seriously. And what they’ve shared with us, is the importance in having full transparency in where their food comes from and how it’s produced,” said Keith Knopf, Raley’s president and COO. “That’s why we dug deep to find the right partner that will offer our customers natural pork alternatives. We are excited to partner with American Homestead Pork, whose strong quality standards mirror our own. Our customers can trust that they’ll have quality pork options at a value, raised on sustainable and humane practices.”
