In April Domino’s Pizza shareholders rejected a resolution proposed by the Humane Society of the United States to require its pork suppliers to stop housing sows in gestation stalls. In fact 80% of shareholders voted against the resolution. A Domino’s spokesperson says the company relies on animal experts to determine the best way to raise an animal that’s used for food.
The farming community is rallying together this weekend to thank Domino’s Pizza shareholders for choosing to consider the welfare of farm animals over the cries of an extremist group. Farmers are encouraging everyone to order Domino’s Pizza this weekend, May 18-20 as a way to thank Domino’s Pizza for standing with America’s farmers.
Chinn says, “Domino’s decision speaks volumes to me as a farmer. It shows they trust the experts I trust. It shows they trust me. I appreciate that.”
Chinn went on to say, “Members of my family, especially my kids, love pizza just about as much as they love farming. I think the next time we decide to have pizza, I’m going to show a little love back. I am going to buy a Domino’s pizza. For me, this means driving 45 minutes out of my way but I think it’s worth it to support a company that supports me. And it gives a vote of support to a company that leaves important decisions like animal care up to the experts!”
When you pick up your pizza or get it deliver be sure give this sheet to the Domino’s employee to thank them.
