KFC Canada and PETA's Agreement

After 5 years of pressure, KFC Canada has finally agreed to the following PETA's requests:

- add a vegan ʽchickenʼ item to the menu

- phase in purchases of all chickens from suppliers that use controlled-atmosphere killing (CAK). KFC Canada is the first major restaurant chain to make such a commitment.

- improve its animal welfare audit criteria to reduce the number of broken bones and other injuries suffered by birds.

- urge its suppliers to adopt better practices, including improved lighting, - - lower stocking density and ammonia levels, and a phase-out of growth-promoting drugs and breeding practices that cripple chickens.

- and form an animal welfare advisory panel to monitor the changes and recommend further advancements.
