PETA Buying Corporate Stock
JUNE 1, 2010
Companies don't always change their policies, but Byrne said the effort has paid off. After PETA bought stock, Safeway grocery stores and restaurant companies Ruby Tuesday, Sonic and Burger King agreed to give purchasing preference to suppliers that abide by what the group says are more humane rules, such as not confining chicken and hogs in small cages, she said. I'm sure this is old news, but PETA keeps buying corporate stock to gain influence in corporate decision-making.
