Summary: The topic I have chosen to look into is the animal cruelty behind the big fast food chains. I have chosen to look specifically into livestock and how they are treated. According to google, animal cruelty is defined as “the deliberation between either abuse or simply the failure to take care of an animal. Either way, or whether the animal is a pet, a farm animal or wildlife, the victim can suffer terribly. ... Neglect is not giving an animal necessary food, water, shelter or vet care.” In the topics above, it is spoken about how badly the suppliers treated the animals before sending them to their designated fast food chains. It is very important for famous fast food chains such as KFC, Mc Donalds and Nandos to have good quality meat…show more content…
All 4 fast food chains have many things in in common, one standing out would be their strive to be the biggest fast food chain in the word in the future. They all are similar in what they serve, mainly chicken, burger king being an acceptation selling a variety of meats, but they also serve chicken and that’s why I used them as a business. The first article explains how KFC, bought from a supplier who’s employees would jump, drop kick and slam the chickens into walls and do many other acts of cruelty to the chickens. It explained how the only proof of this was a video released from a private instigator who was investigating the factory. In the article it commented on how the project supervisor would not object to the harm of the chickens and would simply walk by and tell them to carry on with what they were doing to the animals. In the article it is obvious that the workers weren’t killing the correct number of chickens as the supervisor made a comment on how they should kill correctly on that day because inspectors were going to visit.KFC have defended themselves and claim to take immediate actions.

They’ve been smart about making their customers away about what they’ve done, by publishing an article, and stated that the increased costs of the crate free meat won’t increase the amount and individual spends on a meal. Mc Donalds, KFC, and Nandos have all have issues within their supply chain, but are most likely going to just swap suppliers, ending up with a similar result. Instead of taking a step forward and changing the way the supplier acts. These 4 fast food chains are very competitive and now that Burger King has addressed the issue of confined spaces for the livestock. The other 3 chains will most likely jump on the bandwagon, to raise the competition. In my opinion all livestock suppliers should jump on the bandwagon with Burger King, because this way the livestock can be insured better treatment and us as customers can be insured better quality food. The first 3 articles all have proof on their suppliers and therefore take serious action upon the issues of the mistreatment. Burger King is trying to set an example and raise the standards to their competitors. Burger King has also improved
