Write a one page answering the Scenario in your own words
Chicken International Group
You are the CEO of a chicken-processing company. The Vice
President of marketing informs you that if you label your chicken
as “free range”, you can charge 20% more and greatly improve profit
You find out that all that needs to be done to legally use the term “free range” is to open the door to the hen house for 5 minutes a day. This provides the chickens with access to the outdoors when, in fact, very few chickens will wander out when the door is open for 5 minutes. Moreover, the term “free range” may be used regardless of space per chicken, number of chickens, or amount of time spent outside.
