McDonald's: Very Poor
Fast food isn’t worth the needless suffering of billions of chickens
The Pecking Order grades fast food giants against three criteria for chicken welfare.
Here’s how McDonald's stacks up:
Poor: McDonald’s has made several commitments to improving chicken welfare across most of the geographies the company is present in, but they don’t align with best practice.
Poor: Despite McDonald’s having a target to avoid broiler cages across all geographies, they do not have any other truly universal or robust targets.
Very poor: McDonald’s publishes very limited data on its progress towards better chicken welfare.
