Fundamental Poultry Policy Change

I support Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall in his campaign for free-range chicken sales. Battery chicken farming is inhumane. Major supermarkets and, in particular, Tesco need to seriously consider their current policy and encourage more farmers to produce free-range chickens at an affordable price. Battery chicken production is really not acceptable.

Asking Hugh to pay the costs merely reflects their resistance to changing the present circumstances; especially since they generate such immense profits.

I freely admit that I still buy Tesco's standard, cooked chicken. The free-range cooked chicken on their shelves is negligible and considerably costlier. They could do more.
