Inghams Enterprises is one of the largest chicken and the largest turkey supplier in Australia. It was a private company but was recently sold to TPG for $880 million. Its former owner Bob Ingham is worth over $1b. The sale will undoubtedly make its new owner a lot of money – but unless things change this will be money based on unnecessary animal suffering. As Australia’s Animal Liberation points out Ingham’s workers torture and abuse the animals it sells. I am an “uncomfortable” carnivore but I won’t buy these products again and I encourage others to do the same.
Inghams has an “animal rights” policy (to “minimise distress and pain”) which is meaningless because it is not enforced. Even if it is costly to enforce it must be enforced. No excuses, the failure to ensure that sentient beings do not experience unnecessary pain and suffering prior to being killed to provide food for us is a disgrace. So too is the cruel behaviour of the workers shown in the video clip – they are barbarians who should go to jail.
