Vietnam’s first farms join global cage-free movement

Two Vietnamese farms were the first in the country to gain the Certified Humane label with support from the Humane Society International – a global organisation working to protect all animals.


The project is freeing thousands of hens from cages in the first year and will expand in the years to come, with the assistance from the Humane Society International.

To earn the label, the farms meet specific requirements on health, nutrition and management of cage-free hens under the Humane Farm Animal Care standards.

Since its establishment in 2003, some 1,000 enterprises and farmers have engaged in the Humane Farm Animal Care programme, helping improving life of over 1.5 billion farm animals by expanding consumer awareness and driving the demand for kinder and more responsible farm animal practices./.
