A chicken company from Grubbenvorst has won the Liegebeest contest of Wakker Dier this year.
According to the animal welfare organization, Kloeke Kip, as the company is called, speaks of ‘fair chicken’ and ‘a focus on the welfare of the animal’. Wakker Dier labels this as ‘pure nonsense’.
Since 2009, Wakker Dier has organized the annual Liegebeest election to reveal ‘deception and false statements’ about animal welfare. A total of 21,500 people voted. The poultry farm from Grubbenvorst received 43 percent of the votes. The other nominees were the Dutch Dairy Organization, Zeeuwsisjes and the MSC and ASC fish labels.
In the past, CDA politician Ger Koopmans also won this prize.

Waiver of nomination
The company from Grubbenvorst already renounced the nomination for the Liegebeest election earlier this month. ‘De Kloeke Kip is open and transparent and will show anyone who asks for information how the integrated sustainable chain and most sustainable barn in the world works. We always answer questions and are convinced that we are truly sustainable, ‘the company wrote in a response. Kloeke Kip invites everyone to come and have a look in the barn.
Wakker Dier has previously tried to prevent the arrival of the chicken shed in Grubbenvorst through the courts. Ultimately, the company was allowed to come.
