WAV Comment – 2026 is a long way off and gives years for animals to still be abused. We welcome the news but KFC should have acted for these improvements much earlier than 2026. Not Good Enough KFC – you remain on our list !
You helped improve the lives of millions of chickens! Your signature, along with the signatures of more than half a billion other chicken supporters on our KFC petition urging the fast food giant to give better lives to chickens is helping to bring change.
KFC has announced that they are signing the Better Chicken Commitment in six European countries: UK, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, and Belgium. This is the first major fast food outlet to commit to this set of standards which will change the lives of tens of millions of chickens.
What is the Better Chicken Commitment?
This commitment means that by 2026 all farms that supply KFC’s restaurants in the six European countries will move away from fast-growing breeds that suffer from painful heart, lung, and bone problems.
This also means that these chickens will have:
More space to move around
More natural light
More enrichment (such as straw bales to explore and peck)
A better overall environment for them to behave naturally
Thank you for being a part of this huge win for chickens. We will continue to keep the pressure on KFC in the United States to bring similar commitment for chickens right here. Thank you again for being a part of this victory!
