The NSPCA has requested that Woolworths remove the statement that they have an NSPCA approved Animal Welfare Code of Practice in place. This is not the case and has never been the case. So we wonder how that statement ever crept onto their websites, Taste Magazine and even the Corporate Governance in Africa Case Study prepared by Justin Smith in 2009 on The Woolworths Good Business Journey for the University of Stellenbosch?
The NSPCA said on twitter today that Woolworths have explained that this statement is “old”.
However… the appearance of this statement online range from 2010 to 2015, so all are not “old”. “Old” is surely no excuse unless a counter statement has been issued, and the “old” claim removed?
Here are just some of the sites that make the statement that Woolworths has an NSPCA approved Animal Welfare Code of Practice.
Woolworths don’t you think you owe South African consumers an explanation and the NSPCA?
