1909 Taverne Moderne has failed to publicly adopt a commitment prohibiting the worst forms of animal abuse in its supply chain. At typical factory farms, chickens are bred to grow so unnaturally fast that many can’t support their own bodies, causing constant, severe leg pain and lameness. As a result, they spend nearly all their time sitting in their own waste, leading to extreme feather loss, thigh sores and scabs, and painful lesions on their bodies and feet.
While dozens of leading food companies, such as Tim Hortons, Burger King, and Starbucks, have pledged to prevent this suffering in their supply chains, 1909 Taverne Moderne has failed to publicly adopt an effective animal welfare policy that addresses this unconscionable abuse.

Typical Factory Farm Practices
Living in Darkness
Chickens are crammed together and kept in near darkness for their entire lives. Many will not see sunlight until the day they are killed.
Bred to Suffer
Chickens are artificially bred to grow so unnaturally fast they often suffer from debilitating leg pain and organ failure.
Sitting in Waste
Birds spend most of their lives sitting in old litter soaked with feces and urine, resulting in painful sores and respiratory problems.
Killed While Conscious
At the end of their lives, chickens are violently shackled upside down and have their throats cut—all while fully conscious.
The best way for individual consumers to help end this cruelty is to leave animals off their plates.
