Grass Fed Cattle and Animal Welfare Program Statement
Great Lakes Gelatin shares the concerns that many of our customers have about animal welfare and the quality of the grazing conditions for cattle. We believe cattle should be raised in a natural environment. Our bovine gelatin is made from the hides of cattle from our associated partners in Argentina and Brazil.
Ranchers in Argentina and Brazil have traditionally raised cattle in herds that graze freely on the natural grasslands. Based on visiting the region, it is our observation that this is the case.
Great Lakes Gelatin has a long history with our foreign partners and we only do business with sources that we trust are adhering to the principles of animal welfare and are grazing herds in the traditional manner.
