Domino’s Says Yes to Gestation Crates


Domino’s will continue to purchase pork from farmers who crate their pigs, despite news that fast-food chains such as McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s are making a commitment to stop buying swine supplied from farms that use gestation crates.

“It’s about time one of the major fast-food franchises showed some backbone to the animal-rights activist group. Other fast-food companies — including Burger King, McDonald’s and Wendy’s — have caved to their demands, fearing [the Humane Society of the United States] will stir public outcry and reprisal if they don’t,” reads a blog by Mike Barnett, publications director, Texas Farm Bureau.

Some farmers praise Domino’s position, saying the company trusts them to be experts in raring animals for foodservice production.

Animal-rights groups and companies supporting a more humane treatment of pigs in foodservice are sending a different message.
