Walmart Sets Stage to Monitor Animal Welfare
Publication Date: 5/28/2015

Walmart is the largest grocery store in the U.S., accounting for 25 percent of all food business. So while these suggestions are momentarily voluntary, if taken to an extreme could change the way products are made and sold across the retail industry.
