Every hen is an individual, each with her own unique personality. Just like us, some hens are shy, others are confident. Some live for adventures, while others just like to hang out with their friends. But no matter what their differences, all hens have one thing in common: they suffer immensely in cages.
Trapped in cramped, factory-farm cages, there isn't even enough room for hens to spread their wings — let alone engage in normal and natural behaviours like dustbathing, sunbaking, foraging, or building a nest in peace and privacy.
That's why companies the world-over are responding to community concern about animals and ditching cage eggs.
The list below shows companies and brands that have yet to publicly commit to not use cage eggs:
|Chris Foods (Chris' Dips)|
One of the largest food suppliers to the airline industry, including Qantas
|Hogs Breath Café and Steakhouse|
|PFD Food Services|
|Retail Food Group
Donut King, Michelle's Patisseries, Brumbys, Crust Pizza, The Coffee Guy, Gloria Jeans, Pizza Capers, Cafe 2 U, It's a grind, bb's Café, Esquires Coffee, Di Bella Coffee
Vetta Pasta, Nanda Pasta, Kookaburra Pasta, Byron Bay Cookie Company
|Superior Food Services|
|Virgin Australia Airlines|
Please note that this list is not exhaustive. If you know of a company or brand who you think should be on this list please .
Many other companies and brands, including Aldi, Grill'd, Heinz, Hungry Jacks, and Subway, have made a public commitment2 to stop supporting battery cages. We've made a handy list here for you to see here.
You can help spare hens from cages!
Urge major companies including Pizza Hut, Dominos, and Qantas, to make a public commitment to be cage free.
