Quotes

"All the training, documentation, scrutiny, auditing and verification we have in place is to establish a culture and supporting practices that uphold high standards of animal welfare,” said Ben Brooks, general manager of poultry operations at the company. "Animal welfare guides all of our operating procedures and is a central facet of training in any facility that has animals under its care.”"
"Because this was a general undertaking, this does lead us to believe that the cruelty that was documented at this facility runs rampant throughout the entire hatchery industry" Osborne said
"If the industry has nothing to hide, they should show the public that they're taking care of their animals," she said. "The public has a right to see how their food is being produced."
