Aramark Pledges to Eliminate Gestation Crate Use

The Philadelphia-based food-service company has partnered with the Humane Society of the United States to end gestation crate use.

Yesterday, Philadelphia-based international food service company Aramark announced in partnership with the Humane Society of the United States its plans to eliminate the use of gestation crates in its US supply chain by 2017. The professional-services company has issued requests to its primary pork suppliers to develop plans for phasing out and further eliminating the confining crates. “We’re committed to operating responsibly and addressing key issues, including animal welfare, throughout our supply chain and business, and this commitment helps move the entire industry toward the elimination of gestation crates,” said Aramark Senior Director of Environmental Sustainability Kathy Cacciola.
