Certified Humane?

Interesting article in the Christian Science Monitor on consumer interest in labels that show animals were treated humanely -- Organic Food? Sure, but is it cage-free?, by Amanda Paulson:

The organic industry may be one of the fastest-growing niches of the food world, but for a small group of consumers organic is passé.

Instead, they're pushing for reliable information that would tell consumers whether industrial or family farms produced the food, whether that food was grown locally, and whether farms treated their animals "humanely."

That makes for a crowded label. Nevertheless, some food retailers and producers are starting to respond.  article
