Delhaize America – Animal Welfare Report


The country’s ninth-largest grocer, Delhaize America, announced that it will require its pork suppliers to produce reports regarding their progress in eliminating from their pork supply chains the use of gestation crates-cages used to house breeding pigs that are so restrictive, the animals can’t even turn around. The Humane Society of the United States applauded the move. Delhaize has more than 1,500 locations under the Food Lion, Hannaford and Bottom Dollar brands.

Delhaize is one of 60 major food companies working to eliminate gestation crates from their supply chains and throughout the pork industry; others include McDonald’s, Burger King, Safeway, Target, Costco and Oscar Mayer.
