Wendy’s Demands Quarterly Animal Welfare Reports

2

Wendy’s, the world’s third-largest fast food chain with more than 6,500 locations, announced that it will require its suppliers to produce quarterly reports regarding their ability to provide pork produced without the use of gestation crates. The cages used to house breeding pigs are so restrictive, the animals can’t even turn around.

The Humane Society of the United States applauded the announcement, which follows a 2012 commitment made by Wendy’s to eliminate the controversial cages from the company’s American and Canadian supply chains.

Wendy’s is one of 60 food companies that have mandated an end to gestation crates in their supply chains.
