Cracker Barrel Shareholders Drop Gestation Crates

An anti-gestation crate initiative was recently approved by 96 percent of Cracker Barrel’s shareholders.

Recently, shareholders of Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, a national restaurant chain with more than 600 locations in 40 states, approved a proposal submitted by the Humane Society of the United States to no longer buy pork that comes from farms that use gestation crates. According to a quarterly report released by Cracker Barrel on November 18, the proposal was approved by more than 96 percent of the stockholders. “That shareholders of an iconic middle-America restaurant chain like Cracker Barrel have expressed support for getting pigs out of gestation crates is further evidence that these cruel cages’ days are numbered,” says HSUS food policy director Matthew Prescott. .
