Walmart's Animal Welfare Policy Among Worst For Major Companies: Report

Walmart is among the worst big companies when it comes to making sure that the animals it sells are well treated, according to a new report from the Business Benchmark on Farm Animal Welfare. The report ranks Walmart in the lowest tier and claims animal welfare is not on Walmart's business agenda.

The Business Benchmark on Farm Animal Welfare, a research and advocacy group aiming to improve animal welfare standards, ranked companies based on their governance, management commitment and innovation on animal welfare. Unilever, the maker of Dove and Slim-Fast, was ranked highly by the study, which commends its practice of requiring suppliers to adhere to standards around sustainable agriculture.
