It’s not ‘cheeky’ – it’s cruel

We are calling on Nando’s to urgently improve its chicken welfare policies and to stop using fast-growing breeds of chickens which suffer from failing organs that struggle to keep up with growth rates.

KFC recently made a commitment to improve chicken welfare in the UK and a number of other European countries after 500,000 people signed a World Animal Protection petition demanding change, which leaves Nando’s lagging far behind.

Our research shows that over a third of Nando’s customers believe the iconic restaurant chain has the highest welfare policies compared to other fast food chain. In reality, our Pecking Order report revealed that they rank among the lowest for chicken welfare, alongside McDonald’s and Pizza Hut.

We are asking Nando’s to make a commitment to:

  • Stop using fast-growing chicken breeds and instead switch to chickens which grow at a slower, more natural rate, to avoid them suffering from the serious health issues that cause them pain and suffering
  • Introduce lower stocking densities to give chickens more space and room so they can move more freely and behave more naturally
