Walmart sucks, and here’s one more reason: they are mean to animals.
The Business Benchmark on Farm Animal Welfare, which is “designed to help drive higher farm animal welfare standards in the world’s leading food businesses,” gave Wal-Mart the lowest possible rating for its performance on this issue. Out of six tiers, Wal-Mart landed at the bottom in Tier 6 because animal welfare is “not on [its] business agenda.”
The report that reached this conclusion, issued on February 25th, “presents the findings of an independent evaluation of around 70 leading food companies on their approach to managing and reporting on farm animal welfare issues.” As “the first global measure of animal welfare standards in food companies,” its publication reflects the growing attention to animal welfare in the food industry. Though its analysis is rigorous, the report does have an agenda: “to help drive higher farm animal welfare standards in the world’s leading food businesses.”
