Food Company Heinz Plans to Phase-Out Gestation Crates

The food-product company joins the massive corporate movement away from the inhumane porcine housing system.

Yesterday, in a joint announcement with the Humane Society of the United States, H. J. Heinz Co. announced that it has committed to ending the use of gestation crates in its pork supply. The $10.7 billion company, which creates sauces and frozen meals that contain pork, is currently asking its suppliers to create plans to end the use of the confining crates. On his blog, HSUS President Wayne Pacelle expressed hope for the end of gestation crates altogether, saying, “It will hopefully just be a matter of time before the pork industry’s leadership realizes that change is inevitable.”
