March 20, 2017, Vaughan, Ont – Cara recently announced it continues to work with suppliers to evolve animal welfare beyond current standards, including the adoption of controlled atmosphere stunning.
Cara has committed to have its suppliers begin the conversion to this humane method by 2020, with a vast majority of its suppliers completed by 2022 with the rest to follow thereafter.
An example of Cara's ongoing commitment to humane treatment of animals occurred in February 2016 when the company announced that a number of its restaurant brands were switching to cage free eggs and all of its restaurant brands would do so by 2020.
Cara is excited to announce this initiative that goes beyond the current standard and will continue to work with various associations and regulatory bodies to continue to evolve animal welfare in Canada.
