Kroger Demands Expedited Move to Ban Crates

Grocery megachain Kroger is encouraging its pork suppliers to hasten their elimination of gestation crates.

With nearly 2,500 locations, Kroger is the nation’s largest grocery-store chain, and it announced Monday that it is determined to source its pork from crate-free facilities as soon as possible. Following the lead of rival grocer Safeway, as well as myriad fast-food restaurants and catering companies, the chain pledged to quicken the process of eradicating the cruel crates, which confine pregnant sows to a space so small that they cannot move freely or even turn around. Humane Society of the United States President and CEO Wayne Pacelle applauded the move, stating, “[Kroger] has taken a very important step … in declaring that the pork industry must find an exit strategy for its use of gestation crates.”
