SCS Global Services, a pioneer and global leader in third-party food and agriculture certifications, and standards development, has announced that it has been approved by California Department of Food and Agriculture to offer Proposition 12 certification.

As of this year, all producers of egg-laying hens, breeding pigs, and/or veal calves, as well as distributors of covered products intended for sale in California, are required to possess a valid certificate of compliance.

“Obtaining approval to offer Proposition 12 Certification is a significant milestone for SCS Global Services. We are proud to support the implementation of standards that prioritize the welfare of farm animals in California,” said Carly Becker, SCS's technical associate for the dairy and animal welfare program. “We look forward to working closely with producers and distributors committed to promoting animal welfare and responsible agriculture practices.”

As a certification body, SCS says it will play a vital role in verifying compliance with Prop 12 requirements, safeguarding the welfare of farm animals and providing transparency to consumers seeking products from humanely raised animals. In addition to Prop 12 Certification, SCS offers numerous agricultural certification services, including USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project, Gluten Free, food safety certifications such as GLOBALG.A.P., PrimusGFS and SQF, and a variety of sustainable agricultural certifications, including SCS’ own Certified Sustainably Grown. SCS also supports retail-driven animal welfare and responsible sourcing initiatives around the world.
