The Coalition for Humane and Ethical Farming Standards, CHEFS is focused on bringing public awareness to animal husbandry practices and advocating for responsible public policy which reflects a balanced, science-based, inclusive and reasoned approach to governance.
Our Three Objectives are to:
Support Humane Husbandry Practices
Educate the Public
Influence Public Policy
The coalition represents groups and individuals such as chefs, restaurateurs, culinary professionals, schools and students, farmers, distributors, purveyors, scientists, retailers, businesses, animal welfare and advocacy groups, concerned citizens, and supporters of sustainable and humane farming standards among many others worldwide.
We oppose California's ban on the production and sale of products from farmed ducks and geese.
We support standards for ethical treatment of animals and humane farming practices.
