Nestle Makes Animal Welfare Pledge


Nestle Makes Animal Welfare Pledge after dairy cow abuse.

Nestle has agreed to make sweeping reforms for animal welfare after a former supplier was documented abusing dairy cows.

Nestle, one of the world’s largest food companies based in Switzerland, said it has signed a partnership agreement with World Animal Protection, which means all 7,300 of the company’s suppliers of animal-derived products will have to comply with the organization’s tougher animal welfare standards.
