Pedigree by Mars and Purina by Nestle are two of the world's biggest-selling pet foods.
NEW YORK - Swiss food giant Nestle SA and U.S. candy and pet food company Mars pledged on Thursday to take steps to ensure their pet food supply chains are free from human rights abuses and illegally caught seafood - in a move welcomed by campaigners.
Thailand had been previously named in alleged labour abuses, and is in the spotlight again in the new reform promises.
Nestle and Mars, the makers of Pedigree and Purina pet food, said they would reduce or eliminate seafood that has been moved by fishing companies from one vessel to another in a practice that enables ships to stay at sea longer.
