Compass Group promised to end the use of crates for mother pigs 10 years ago. Instead of fulfilling its commitment, Compass weakened it again and again and now refuses to make any meaningful progress to stop forcing mother pigs to be locked in crates that are barely bigger than their bodies.
Gestation crates are so cruel they are banned in ten states in the U.S. – Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, Oregon and Rhode Island – as well as in the United Kingdom and Sweden. Compass chooses to ignore this cruelty.
Over 100 companies in the U.S. have committed to banning gestation crates including Aramark, Nestlé, Campbell’s, and Kraft Heinz. Even some pet food companies have made meaningful commitments to end the use of gestation crates.
Compass Group has broken its promise to you, the animals, and the companies it works with. We can’t let them continue to ignore mother pigs who are suffering in crates. These animals need us to fight for them.
