Restaurant giant Denny's has announced it will work with its suppliers to eliminate the practice of confining pigs in gestation crates for its bacon, sausage and other pork products. Greg Linford, Denny's vice president, procurement and distribution, says - Denny's takes its role as a responsible corporate citizen seriously, which is why we have adopted a strong position on animal welfare.
Linford adds, - we will endeavor to purchase products from companies that provide gestation crate-free pork and are committed to influencing our suppliers to share in a gestation crate-free vision for the future. Linford says - working to eliminate gestation crates is best for our company, our guests, and our continued work to improve animal welfare.
Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO for The Humane Society of the United States, says - we welcome the news that Denny's will move its supply chain to a gestation crate-free future. Denny's is one of the largest restaurant chains in the country, operating more than 1,650 locations across the U.S.
