KFC commits to new chicken welfare standards
#1
https://www.theguardian.com/environment/...-standards

KFC is to become the first UK fast food chain to sign up to new European welfare standards for farmed chickens, in an attempt to tackle growing concerns about inhumane conditions in the intensive and large-scale production of meat.

The move by the America-owned chain – 18 months after the blueprint was unveiled – will put pressure on rivals McDonald’s and Burger King, as well as large supermarkets such as Tesco and Sainsbury’s to follow suit.

Supermarkets, restaurant chains and hotel groups have all been urged to commit to the so-called European Chicken Commitment, which represents the first time a single set of requirements has been agreed on across the continent by a large coalition of European animal protection groups, including the RSPCA.



Well, knowing how awful the conditions are for their chickens, I do hope things improve for them, at least.

Of course, I don't think it's really possible to produce this quantity of chicken, at the prices that KFC customers demand, in a 'humane' fashion. So, this definitely won't go far enough for vegans and vegetarians, and I expect it won't be good enough for many animal-welfare-conscious non-vegetarians either. But, I guess a step in the right direction is better than nothing at all.

Painless and humane is a lot better than tortured and perpetually scared, I guess. Doubt it'll actually happen though.
