Spencer, IA: (Mar. 13, 2013) – One of the country’s largest grocery companies is putting pressure on pork suppliers to stop using gestation crates.

Minnesota-based Supervalu says it will require reports from its suppliers on their progress in producing pork without the use of the individual gestation stalls.

Supervalu has 3400 stores, which include Cub Foods, Save-A-Lot, Farm Fresh and Shop’n Save.
