Brookshire Brothers Stop Supporting Cruel Cage Farms

This petition had 17,994 supporters

Living in Texas, I’m privy to a wide range of grocery stores. One of my favorites, Brookshire Brothers, has consistently been a top choice of mine over the last few years. Suddenly, Brookshire Brothers will no longer be a grocery store I consider shopping at moving forward. This is a result of learning that the vast majority of eggs Brookshire Brothers sells come from farms where hens are confined in cruel battery-cages. 

In 2016, the idea of caging egg-laying hens is not accepted by consumers. However, despite Brookshire Brothers’ motto to provide solutions to consumers’ needs along with exceptional service; Brookshire Brothers still continues to support this cruelty in its egg-supply chain. Prominent retailers such as Walmart, BJ’s Wholesale Club and many others are transitioning away from this outdated practice. Not only retailers, but the top restaurant chains such as McDonald’s and Taco Bell are all phasing out cages from its supply chains.

Brookshire Brothers is digging its heels in to be able to continue exploiting hens in an inhumane manner. Numerous studies are showcasing how intelligent and unique these hens are proven to be. These beautiful girls deserve better treatment and confining them in tiny wire cages is not a practice customers are supporting in this day and age!

Please sign my petition urging Brookshire Brothers to end its support of farms that cage egg-laying hens.
