Aramark is committed to animal welfare and sustainable sourcing practices and has an industry leading policy that addresses a range of topics, including broiler chickens. We are working constructively with responsible and credible organizations such as the Humane Society of the U.S. and Compassion in World Farming to address this issue. It is unfortunate that an activist organization has launched an attack campaign when we are engaged in productive dialogue with likeminded NGOs, academia and suppliers to actually resolve the problem. The reality is that producing sustainably sourced broiler chickens is currently a challenge for the entire poultry and food industry, not just Aramark. We are committed to being part of the solution.
