Sir Kensington’s Condiments become Certified Humane®

Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC), the leading international non-profit certification organization improving the lives of millions of farm animals in food production, announced today that Lancaster Fine Foods in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, achieved Certified Humane® certification for a brand produced in their facility: Sir Kensington’s Mayonnaise.

According to Lancaster Fine Foods, Sir Kensington’s has been the fastest growing condiment brand in Whole Foods over the last 5 years and is the condiment of choice for hundreds of restaurants and hotels nationwide. Now consumers can trust that their Classic Mayonnaise, Chipotle Mayonnaise, Sriracha Mayonnaise, Special Sauce and Dijonnaise will only be made with eggs that are Certified Humane.®

“At Sir Kensington’s, we care deeply about sourcing the highest quality ingredients possible,” says Mark Ramadan, CEO of Sir Kensington’s. “The ethical treatment of hens is a critical part of that for us and our customers, and we’re to be proud on the Certified Humane® program to ensure this.”

HFAC’s Certified Humane® label assures consumers that any products with meat, poultry, egg, or dairy are produced according to HFAC’s precise Animal Care Standards for humane farm animal care. These standards, written by the world’s top farm animal welfare scientists, requires farm animals be raised where they can express their natural behaviors, move around freely and outside of cages, and eat diets free of antibiotics, growth hormones and animal by-products. Third-party independent inspections of farms verify compliance with the Animal Care Standards and traceability audits ensure the source of the eggs for product manufacturers.

Today, more than 103 million farm animals in North and South America are raised under the Certified Humane Raised and Handled® label.

“More and more consumers are showing they care about the humane treatment of farm animals through their choices in the marketplace,” says Adele Douglass, Executive Director for HFAC. “We’re excited to see Sir Kensington’s make the commitment to source Certified Humane® eggs for their condiment products.”
