    Safeway Helping to Eliminate Gestation Crates

    Will continue to shift biz to suppliers utilizing group sow housing 

    Safeway, Inc. said today it has begun eliminating gestation crates from its pork supply, one of 60 food companies to mandate an end to the controversial practice.

    Recently, Safeway converted its Eastern Division fresh pork supply to product sourced from systems that utilize group sow housing, and plans to add another operating division early next year, according to a statement. The company said it will continue to shift its pork business to suppliers that have publicly announced plans to make strides in this regard.

    Pleasanton, Calif.-based Safeway operates 1,406 stores in the United States.
