American Humane Association’s farm animal welfare certification program, American Humane Certified, is proud to introduce its newest certified producer—Brown Cow.

One of the nation’s leading producer of all-natural yogurt is the first national yogurt brand to become an American Humane Certified producer. The American Humane Certified seal will be featured on Brown Cow Cream Top, Low Fat, Nonfat and Parfait cups at grocers everywhere. The seal signifies that an independent, third-party audit found Brown Cow’s animal care and handling met more than 200 criteria certified by American Humane Association.

“Brown Cow yogurt has always come from farms that treat their cows well. Now consumers can be sure of it,” said Colin Van Ostern, Brown Cow Brand Manager. “It’s one of the reasons our all-natural yogurt is so rich, creamy, and delicious.”

“We are delighted to welcome Brown Cow as an American Humane Certified producer, recognizing their longstanding commitment to the humane treatment of animals,” said Robin Ganzert, Ph.D., President and CEO of American Humane Association. “Brown Cow—known for quality, nutritious and delicious products—joins a vibrant community of producers nationally who recognize both the value of, and increasing consumer demand for, the American Humane Certified label.”
