If you thought Nando’s couldn't get any 'cheekier' - think again

Over 35,000 people have signed our petition calling on Nando's to improve its chicken welfare - join us!

Nando’s is loved for its tasty PERi-PERi and cheeky banter. But in reality, it’s actually selling you chickens that grow so quickly they suffer terrible health problems during their short, miserable lives.

In our global ranking of fast-food companies, The pecking order 2020, Nando’s is given a disappointing rating of “Poor” in terms of chicken welfare for the second year in a row.

We're asking Nando's to commit to:

  • Stopping the use of fast-growing chickens and switch to slower growing breeds that grow at a more natural rate
  • Providing chickens with more space to move so they can behave more naturally

Every sign up to #TheRealCheekyNandos petition will help convince Nando’s to take action… which will be good news for the chickens, for you, and for all Nando’s customers.

The REAL 'cheeky' Nando's

Nando's uses fast-growing breeds of chickens which suffer from agonising bone deformities and failing organs. More than 35,000 people have signed our petition calling on Nando's to improve their chicken welfare - will you join us?

Many Nando’s chickens live with painfully deformed legs and hearts and lungs that struggle to keep up with growing too big, too fast. This often means they cannot walk and die prematurely.

Chickens are also kept in cramped conditions with little space to move, preventing them from behaving naturally.

Despite the fact that Nando’s currently sells poorly reared chicken, the chain charges significantly more than other fast-food restaurants, at your expense!

We think that's REALLY 'cheeky', Nando's!

Add your voice to our petition and call for an urgent Change for Chickens at Nando's.
