Stop Purchasing Eggs from Battery Cage Farms

This petition had 658 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birds, battery cage farms are hell on earth for the innocent hens that lay eggs for Gourmet Services, Inc. This outdated agricultural practice is so cruel that it is already illegal in several states in the US and the entire European Union.

Gourmet Services is one many food service companies in the United States. But unlike nearly all of it's competitors, Gourmet Services remains committed to sourcing eggs from battery cage egg farms—cruel factory farms where hens are trapped in cages barely larger than their bodies.

In the last few months we have seen over 40 food service providers commit to ending their support of this archaic practice; from the largest, - Aramark, Sodexo, and Compass Group - to several smaller companies, including Sterling Spoon Culinary Management, Opaa! Food Management, Creative Dining Services and Thomas Cuisine Management. Why is it that Gourmet Services refuses to address the issue?

Please, sign our petition and let Gourmet Services, Inc. and their clients 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 Gourmet Services 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do the right thing and join its competitors in the 21st century by pledging to end its support of farms that still use outdated battery cage systems and putting a firm timeline in place to make this happen.
