The UK’s biggest chicken producer, 2 Sisters Food Group, has become a member of the Global Coalition for Animal Welfare (GCAW), which is an organisation aiming to improve the treatment of animals in global food supply chains.
Other members of the coalition include Tesco, Tyson Foods, and Unilever. The coalition aims to use best practice to improve the welfare of laying hens, broiler chickens and pigs.
Dr Birte Nielsen, Independent Chair of GCAW said “The coalition is embarking on a programme of expansion of its membership base and its species focus areas. The coalition has doubled in size from 7 to 14 members in the past 18 months and its members are making decisive progress on their collective objectives which recognise the inextricable link between improving the welfare of animals, building sustainable supply chains and delivering successful and resilient businesses.”
