HERNDON, Va. – Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC) debuted the Certified Humane App which helps users locate Certified Humane products. The app is available at the App Store for iPhone or Google Play for Android.

The app uses GPS to identify nearby retailers and displays them in an interactive map. Users can search for specific locations as well. The program can locate mainstream supermarkets that sell Certified Humane products, in addition to farmers and ranchers that sell directly to consumers using the “BUY ONLINE” button. The app has a filter option to find wholesale distributors for restaurants and other food service providers who want to sell Certified Humane products.

“With over 7,000 supermarkets across the country selling products that are Certified Humane consumers should be able to find products wherever they are,” said Adele Douglass, HFAC founder and CEO. “This tool connects consumers and businesses by providing consumers with what they have been asking us for, ‘at- their- fingertips access’ and rewards retailers who carry Certified Humane products with more business.”

HFAC is a non-profit organization that certifies meat, poultry, egg, or dairy products have been produced according to HFAC's standards for humane farm animal treatment.
