DENVER, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/09 -- HS3 Technologies Inc. (HS3) (OTCBB: HSTH) -- Beta testing for a video analytic and monitoring system that ensures food production in North America meets humane animal welfare standards has been successfully completed, reports video surveillance and security company HS3 Technologies Inc. Part of the American Humane Association's farm animal welfare program, American Humane Certified(TM), the technology further assures consumers that animal producers and processing facilities are raising and handling their animals humanely.
American Humane Association created the first and original farm animal welfare program in the US. This audit program is voluntary and conducted by an independent third party. HS3's proprietary technology monitors conditions such as temperature, air flow, feeding schedules, personnel entrances/exits and animal mobility.
Beta testing was conducted over several months in 14 production and transportation facilities including egg producer GCB Foods (Nashville, NC) and veal producer Delimax (Quebec - http://www.agricom.ca/delimax.com/?lg=en). The selected producers distribute nationally and internationally, and are among the largest producers in their sector.
This technology will become a standard component of the American Humane Certified three-tiered audit process, monitoring more than 15,000 locations in North America. Qualified producers who successfully complete the American Humane certification process are entitled to use the American Humane Certified logo on their packaging. Research has shown that consumers will pay a premium price at the grocery store for products labeled "humanely-raised," and "cage-free."
