Domino's Pizza spokesman Tim McIntyre recently said that Domino's will not be joining the many, many other restaurant chains, companies and supermarkets who have altered their supply chains in response to concerns about things like pig gestation crates and conditions for caged egg-laying chickens.
So how does Domino's respond when customers raise these concerns? McIntyre told Brownfield Ag News: "The best answer is to be deaf. To not hear them, to not respond, to not give them a platform. The biggest mistake we make is believing that they are reasonable people. We've learned they're not. That's why they're called extremists."
Hear that, everyone? Those of you who lobby for better treatment of sentient beings are "extremists." It's a sad commentary on this company that they feel the need to announce this sentiment publicly. Aren't animal lovers part of their customer base, too? Plus, there are serious health concerns to be considered when animals are raised in poor, inhumane, unsanitary conditions.
Please sign this petition to pledge to boycott Domino's for its decision not to seek out more humane, healthy supply chains. Care2 will ensure your signatures and messages are delivered to Domino's for its board's consideration as they make decisions for the company's future.
