Mars Incorporated, parent company of brands like M&M’s, Milky Way, Snickers, and 3 Musketeers, is failing animals.

Mars claims to be committed to helping create a safe, healthy, and sustainable world for its partners and the communities in which it operates, and the company maintains it cares deeply about the welfare of animals in its supply chain. Nevertheless, Mars continues to sell products with eggs from caged hens in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. 

Caged egg production is widely considered one of the most egregious forms of animal cruelty. Hens are stuffed into wire cages so small the birds can’t walk, fully spread their wings, or engage in other natural behaviors for nearly their entire lives. Many birds become trapped and painfully mangled in cage wire or under feed trays and often suffer and die. Dead hens are left to rot alongside birds still laying eggs for human consumption.

Over 1,600 companies around the world have already pledged to eliminate cages from their egg supply chains. In fact, nearly 100 companies have committed to eliminating cages from their global supply chains, including Mars peers and competitors the Hershey Company, the Ferrero Group, Nestlé, Unilever, PepsiCo, and Grupo Bimbo.

Mars has failed to take global action to stop sourcing eggs from caged hens. 

Please sign and share this petition asking Mars to make a public commitment to eliminating these cruel cages worldwide and help reduce suffering for thousands of hens.
