Wendy's continues to strengthen poultry welfare guidelines
Wendy's International Inc. has recently strengthened
its animal welfare guidelines. The company is giving preferential buying to its
chicken suppliers who improve systems for humane animal welfare.
The company will give purchasing preference to approved suppliers who
actively explore and test controlled atmosphere stunning (CAS) systems, with the
only requirement being that the product quality and value continues to meet
"We believe these actions will lead our suppliers and others in the (pork
and) chicken industry to continue to identify improved methods of handing
animals prior to processing," said Tad Wampfler, Wendy's senior vice president
of supply chain management. "These actions continue to demonstrate our long-term
commitment to the principles of humane animal treatment."
