Head of Chobani Asks Governor to Veto “Ag-Gag” Bill

Benito Baeza

New Berlin, New York ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) – Chobani Founder and Chief Executive Officer Hamdi Ulukaya has stepped forward to urge Idaho Governor Butch Otter to reconsider the “Ag-Gag” bill.

Hamdi said, “A bill is up for approval in Idaho that, if passed, would limit transparency and make some instances of exposing the mistreatment of animals in the state punishable by imprisonment. This could cause the general public concern and conflicts with our views and values.

As someone who grew up on a farm, I believe deeply that the humane treatment of animals is an ethical and moral imperative and, having spent a lot of time in upstate New York and Idaho, I know hundreds of farmers feel the same.

When I founded Chobani, it was based around these core values and principles. And we chose Idaho for Chobani’s second home because of its deep farming culture, sense of community and shared values.

So I am joining many folks across the country in asking Governor Otter to reconsider the bill before him.”
