McDonalds Makes Positive Move to Help Sows
FEBRUARY 14, 2012
I'm no fan of McDonalds, but any little bit of help is progress. The McDonald’s Corporation said on Monday that it would begin working with its pork suppliers to phase out the use of so-called gestational crates, the tiny stalls in which sows are housed while pregnant. McDonald’s believes gestation stalls are not a sustainable production system for the future,” Dan Gorsky, senior vice president for supply chain management for McDonald’s North America, said in a statement.
