Arby's Restaurant Group Inc., an Atlanta-based company comprised of more than 3,400 restaurants, has released its viewpoint on sow gestation stalls in a statement posted on the firm's website.

According to the statement: "Arby’s is committed to only working with suppliers who have policies in place to work towards the elimination of gestation crates on sow farms. We believe there are more humane and sustainable alternatives to gestation crates and are actively collaborating with our suppliers to implement solutions that align with our company’s commitment to Animal Welfare."

in 2011, Arby's was acquired by an affiliate of Roark Capital Group, an Atlanta-based private equity firm that focuses on investing in franchise, brand management and restaurant companies.
