Eliminate Cages From Your Supply Chain!

ConAgra may not be a household name, but its brands are likely to be found in the kitchens of families all around the world. Their most notable brands include Slim Jim, Reddi Wip, Jiffy Pop, Crunch 'n Munch, and Egg Beaters. While these products appear to be harmless, ConAgra Foods is hiding a very dirty secret from its customers: ConAgra continues to source egg ingredients from cruel, unsafe cage farms.

The practice of confining egg-laying hens in these cages is so cruel that it is criminalized in countries all over the world and in several U.S. states. Despite this fact, ConAgra continues to support these cage farms in which hens can’t even stretch a single wing. Hens are forced to live virtually their entire lives in a space roughly the size of an iPad.

Most companies are completely eliminating cages from their supply chain, including some of ConAgra’s major competitors. Most of the top manufacturers, including General Mills, Unilever, Kelloggs, Bimbo Bakery, and Mondelez International have made commitments with timelines to phase out cruel cages. Additionally, nearly all of the major players in the restaurant industry including McDonald’s, Denny’s, Subway, Taco Bell, Wendy’s, Burger King and others have also committed to phasing out cages.

ConAgra’s social responsibility report claims “We believe in the humane treatment of animals.” This is clearly not the case. Please sign our petition and urge ConAgra to join its competitors and do the right thing by producing a timeline to completely eliminate the use of cages in its egg supply chain.
