Today, we are further consolidating this action by committing, by 2026, to sourcing our chicken meat solely from suppliers who adhere to the criteria laid down by the Better Chicken Commitment consortium. This will apply to all of our shops in the EU.
These criteria, established by 30 international NGOs, enforce the breeding standards required for the welfare of the chickens. These include: sufficient surface area available, slow-growing breeding stock, natural light, perches and access to free roaming outside, or indoors for some farms.
PAUL’s commitment will help to create the conditions to drive change throughout the breeding sector, in conjunction with the breeders and producers themselves, who need both time and visibility to put all the necessary changes in place. PAUL is also committed to buying French chicken.
