Market of Choice is committed to the continual evaluation of our policies and practices based on the latest research and information. While we recognize welfare practices are evolving as the industry makes changes to improve animal husbandry, we also acknowledge our role and responsibility to work closely with our partners to ensure they are meeting our product and procurement policies.
Our Supplier Standards
Ranchers and Farmers
We’ve selected some of the best suppliers from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. These partners align with our procurement standards and are members of leading industry groups that adhere to proper animal welfare practices. Below are our key partners, along with links to their animal welfare policies and standards.
Laying Hens and Eggs
We have accelerated the 2024 State of Oregon requirements by eliminating suppliers and products that are not Cage Free, Free Range, or Pasture Raised. Our sourcing policies reflect the same Five Freedoms mentioned above and we are committed to sourcing from as many local suppliers as needed, supporting Oregon’s farmers and growers that can also meet our sourcing policies.
Our new Craft & Kitchen Farm Raised white and brown eggs are sourced from Wilcox Farms. They meet or exceed industry standards and have earned certifications from Certified Humane.
All of our egg suppliers and their animal welfare standards can be found at the links below.
By following the precise standards of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch, we’re able to provide seafood recommendations based on sustainability and best-practices for both fished and farmed choices. Seafood Watch has developed the most trusted, rigorous standards for fishing and aquaculture practices worldwide. These standards are built on a solid foundation of science and collaboration and set the global bar for environmentally sustainable seafood. We work directly with Oregon fisherfolk as well as source other species in our partnership with Ocean Beauty Seafood. Our seafood choices include species that are wild caught or sustainably farm raised.
