Controlled Atmosphere Stunning: Effective High-Volume Poultry Stunning For Today's Processors

The Humane-Aire™ System is a controlled atmosphere stunning system (CAS) that reduces stress in handling, transporting and stunning turkeys and chickens. The Humane-Aire System is helping set a higher standard in working environment and quality of the final processed turkey. Turkey meat that is processed in the Humane-Aire System, with its Controlled Atmosphere Stunning, typically exhibits less indication of stress, resulting in a higher yield and is therefore a more efficient method of harvesting.

As the next generation in turkey processing, Humane-Aire also provides restaurants and retailers with the option of purchasing protein from a food chain that has demonstrated awareness and investments in more humane processing technologies.

“Humane” was consistently the top-ranked choice among respondents when asked to choose products that were identical except for the standards, according to a survey of 1,000 households and five focus groups by the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems at the University of California.

Humane-Aire … a better solution.

“Controlled atmosphere stunning of chickens has important welfare advantages… The U.S. poultry industry should move toward controlled atmosphere stunning.”
