Stop Purchasing Eggs from Cruel Battery Cage Farms
This petition made change with 1,619 supporters!
With each cage the size of a filing cabinet drawer, packed with multiple birds, battery cage farms are hell on earth for the innocent hens that lay eggs for Centerplate. This outdated agricultural practice is so cruel that it is already illegal in several states in the US and the entire European Union.
Centerplate is one of the largest hospitality companies in the world, providing food service for hundreds of sports arenas, universities, conference centers, prisons and more around the country. In just the last two months, The Humane League has worked with Centerplate’s top competitors to make commitments to boycott cruel battery cage egg farms. Even following these announcements made by Compass Group, Aramark, and Sodexo to phase out battery-cage liquid eggs, the appeals for better treatment of animals are repeatedly ignored.
Centerplate remains committed to sourcing eggs from battery cage egg farms—cruel factory farms where hens are trapped in cages barely larger than their bodies. Centerplate has released a statement addressing the battery cage issue in their purchasing choices, but it lacks any firm ground. Without a solid timeline, their statement is meaningless and they can continue to purchase eggs from cruel battery cage farms.
Please, sign our petition and let Centerplate know that people like you do not want to be supporting this kind of extreme animal cruelty with their dining dollars. It's time for Centerplate to do the right thing and join its competitors in the 21st century by pledging to end its support of farms that still use outdated battery cage systems and putting a firm timeline in place to make this happen.
