Breaking News: Nestlé Makes Sweeping Animal Welfare Policy Change

Victory! Following the release of Mercy For Animals’ investigation at a DiGiorno Pizza cheese supplier, and thanks in large part to you speaking out through our petition, DiGiorno’s parent company Nestlé has what may be the most comprehensive and far-reaching animal welfare policy of its kind. Citing the need for continuous improvement in animal welfare, Nestlé has committed to ending many of the cruelest forms of institutionalized animal abuse from its supply chain, including an end to the practices of tail docking and dehorning of dairy cattle, an end to the castration of piglets without painkillers, and the phaseout of growth promoters for poultry. The mega company has also committed to ending the intensive confinement of baby calves in veal crates, pregnant pigs in gestation crates, and egg-laying hens in battery cages. This commitment applies across Nestlé’s entire global supply chain — covering over 90 countries worldwide! Mercy For Animals praises Nestlé for stepping up to the plate to improve the lives of farmed animals on a global level. We are heartened that Nestlé not only took notice, but also took action, after egregious cruelty was exposed at one of its dairy suppliers. Nestlé’s new industry-leading policy will reduce the suffering of millions of animals each year and hopefully inspire other food providers to implement and enforce similar animal welfare requirements. Find out all the details here: While there is still work to be done, Nestlé’s new policy represents the most sweeping animal welfare policy ever adopted by a major food distributor. With Nestlé’s announcement, it’s never been clearer that the days are numbered for many of the factory farming industry’s cruelest practices. It’s now time for Walmart to stop dragging their feet and use their power and influence to reduce the needless pain and suffering animals endure on factory farms.
