KFC and Pizza Hut criticised over animal welfare standards

McDonald's outperformed them in the treatment of livestock used in food production, according to World Animal Protection.

Fast food franchises KFC, Pizza Hut, and Starbucks are facing criticism after a new farm animal welfare report found they demonstrated "limited evidence" of concern with the humane handling of livestock across their operations.

The three businesses were all grouped in “tier five” of World Animal Protection’s latest Business Benchmark on Farm Animal Welfare study, indicating that care for cows, pigs and chickens destined for use in food production was not a major factor in guiding corporate strategy.

The annual benchmark report assesses 110 global food companies and groups them in one of six tiers, using a checklist approach to review a company's attitude and practices regarding the ethical treatment of animals.
