25 We’re committed to meeting the demand from current and future customers for poultry raised to higher welfare standards, including the “2024” criteria outlined in the “Joint Animal Protection Organization Statement on Broiler Chicken Welfare Issues” and by the Global Animal Partnership (GAP). • We’re moving to Controlled Atmosphere Stunning, with one chicken system in place • We conducted research into slower-growing higher welfare breeds, and identified commercially viable options • We’re enhancing housing environments, including natural light and enrichments. A Commitment to Customers Committed to Higher Welfare ANIMAL CARE The Perdue Poultry Care Program encompasses all phases of our supply chain, including breeder and hatchery operations, appropriate comfort and shelter on the farms, comprehensive healthcare and monitoring, nutrition, catching, transporting and harvesting. Our USDA Process Verified Program for Poultry Care provides the added assurance of an audited program with more than 50 documented points from hatchery to harvest, and it covers all our growing areas and harvest operations. Our Poultry Care Program combines principles from the National Chicken Council, our own best practices and the Perdue Commitments to Animal Care initiatives to create a baseline of care that helps ensure the health, comfort and safety of every chicken we raise. For poultry raised indoors, we use temperature-controlled housing with fresh-air ventilation. In the house, chickens are protected from the elements, disease and predators, and they are given constant access to food and water, sufficient room to move and exhibit most natural behaviors, and periods of light and darkness. We’re Raising Animals for High Standards
