A while back, I relayed some info about the `Quash the Squash´ campaign by the RSPCA in the UK aimed at improving the lot of chickens. Apparently, the campaign was/is very successful. Despite the recession, British consumers are increasingly willing to spend more money on `higher welfare´chickens. And, more importantly, they are buying less chicken in general. Excellent trends, both. Particularly the latter. Read more about it and take a brief poll here.
