Stop Maple Lodge's Deceptive Advertising

Animal Justice started this petition to Competition Bureau and

Canadian consumers are being lied to.

Maple Lodge Farms plasters its products and website with pastoral images of spacious landscapes and healthy, heritage chickens enjoying sunlight and grass.

In reality, the chickens it slaughters were bred to grow so large, so quickly that they collapse under their own weight and die of heart attacks while still peeping like babies. They will virtually never have seen the light of day or felt grass beneath their feet before they are killed at just six weeks of age.

Maple Lodge Farms claims to be committed to the “humane,” “respectful” treatment of chickens.

In reality, Maple Lodge is currently on probation for 20 animal cruelty convictions. In just one year following its convictions, it received 14 additional fines for animal cruelty offences - significantly more than any other company in Canada. And just last week, it was exposed for “torturing” chickens in its slaughter factory.

Maple Lodge Farms repeatedly references its family-owned status, knowing that consumers believe family farms to be the opposite of factory farms.

In reality, Maple Lodge is the epitome of profit-driven agribusiness, treating chickens like meat-production widgets in a food assembly line. In fact, Maple Lodge “Farms” doesn’t even operate farms of its own.

It's no wonder consumers were shocked and outraged when video footage surfaced revealing that what Maple Lodge considers “humane and respectful,” animal welfare experts consider “unconscionable,” “inexcusable,” and “abhorrent.”

That’s why Animal Justice has filed a formal legal complaint against Maple Lodge Farms, citing violations of federal consumer protection laws. Three federal statutes prohibit making false and misleading claims in advertising.

Tell Canadian law enforcement authorities to hold Maple Lodge accountable for grossly misleading consumers while perpetrating egregious animal suffering behind closed doors!
