Investment firm targets Tesco over animal welfare

Not-for-profit asset manager CCLA is backing TV chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's campaign to make Tesco improve its poultry welfare standards.

CCLA, which represents 41,000 clients with Tesco shares, will pledge its votes to the campaign at the Tesco AGM today.

"As an ethical investment company with an ethical client base, CCLA feels strongly that it should back this resolution on behalf of its 42,000 church, charity and local authority clients who hold Tesco shares," said a spokeswoman for CCLA.

"This stance is backed by strong evidence that suggests that Tesco has disregarded its own animal welfare policy."
