One thing we can all be grateful for this year is progress for farm animals. As consumers demand more humane alternatives to factory farming, companies and supermarkets are responding by stocking their shelves with plant-based and welfare-certified options.
We’ve crafted a holiday shopping list of the most festive products from our Shop With Your Heart Grocery List that have either earned a meaningful animal welfare certification recognized by the ASPCA or are a plant-based alternative. Many of them are available to order online, right to your door! Whether you’re looking to spruce up your recipe classics or try something new, there’s something here to delight everyone at the table.
