CARREFOUR

Rated for year 2017: Vegan non compliant

Score: -1

Industry:  food retailer

Analysis:

Sells meat and even has sold dog meat in China (see sources). In France sells Halal meat beef under its own brand name Carrefour, which means that the beef has been killed without stun / loss of consciousness. It implies more suffering for the animals. We notice some animal welfare policy and actions as in France the company has committed to stop selling eggs from chickens raised in cages by 2020.

BENEFICIAL ASPECTS: some animal welfare procedures

HARMFUL ASPECTS: meat and dairy industry distributor and recent controversy
