Big brother to watch over all Inghams plants

Tuesday, 02 April, 2013

Inghams has installed video monitoring in the live bird handling area at its Tahmoor processing plant following the release of a video showing employees kicking, stomping and punching live turkeys prior to processing.

The company has pledged to install video monitoring in all of its 11 Australian and New Zealand plants by the end of the Easter weekend.

“In reinforcing Inghams’ strong commitment to animal welfare, the company is reviewing, retraining and reinforcing its Best Practice Animal Welfare Programs and Standards throughout the organisation and which will be addressed on an ongoing basis,” CEO Kevin McBain said in a statement.

The company has fired five employees from the Tahmoor abattoir as a result of the incident and is continuing to investigate.
