Bon Appétit Standards

  • All of our milk and yogurt comes from cows not treated with the synthetic hormone rBGH  (since 2003).

In addition, some Bon Appétit chefs also buy local, pasture-raised dairy products through our Farm to Fork program.

Future goals: We agree with the dairy industry’s own decision to phase out the cruel practice of tail docking of dairy cows and are asking all of our suppliers to do so immediately, as well as to cease dehorning without pain management by 2026, or sooner if there are breakthroughs on resolving these issues (such as using polled genetics so that cattle are born without horns).
