Stop Supporting Farms that Cage Hens

The majority of consumers agree: caging egg-laying hens for their entire lives is just plain wrong. That’s why companies like Grupo Bimbo, Unilever, Barilla, Sodexo, ALDI, and many others have all made a global commitment to end their support of cruel cage farms.

But General Mills refuses to end its support of farms that confine hens in tiny, filthy cages. These cages are so packed with birds that the hens can’t do anything that is natural or important to them.

Not only food manufacturers but top grocery chains and hospitality companies are phasing out cages from their global supply chains. Even some of the top egg producers in the world have stated they are moving away from cages and that cage-free is the future. General Mills, itself, has pledged to eliminate this cruel practice in the US and Canada but refuses to do so within its global supply chain.

Please sign this petition to tell General Mills that you won’t be purchasing any of their products as long as they support these cages.
