Consumers in Canada and beyond continue to demand humane animal products, pressuring retailers, food suppliers and producers alike to make changes to their approach to farming practices in their supply chains.
As consumers continue to educate themselves on the realities of farming in Canada, consumer attitudes towards pork and egg products in particular have changed dramatically. This has more and more retailers, suppliers and producers from across the globe making commitments to phase out cruel farming practices such as the use of gestational and farrowing crates for pigs and the use of cruel battery cages for hens.
It is an important part of our work at the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies to alert consumers about which retailers, suppliers and producers have made commitments to animal welfare so that they may choose products that reflect their own ethics about the treatment of farm animals.
Download our alphabetized list, which summarizes the commitments made by retailers, suppliers and producers to phase-out gestation stalls for sows and shift to cage-free housing for layer-hens. This chart is updated on a regular basis to reflect new or changing commitments to animal welfare.
