IKEA announces Better Chicken Programme
Compassion’s statement on IKEA’s Better Chicken Programme – 22 January 2017
Following IKEA’s withdrawal from our Good Chicken Award in November, and progressive talks around their Better Chicken Programme and alignment with the US and EU Broiler Asks, we regret that IKEA have been unwilling to sign up to the specifics of all the criteria within the ask.
The criteria of the asks are based on scientific evidence and best practice from a variety of sources, to improve the lives of the chickens reared for meat.
We hope through the work of the Better Chicken Programme, IKEA will be confident to sign up to the specific criteria in the asks in due course.
