Mondelēz International may not be a household name, but their sweet and salty snacks are likely to be found in the kitchens of families all around the world. Their most notable brands include Milka, Cadbury, Toblerone, Nabisco, Oreo, Chips Ahoy!, Ritz, Wheat Thins, Triscuits, and Fig Newtons. While these treats appear to be harmless and are often marketed towards children, Mondelēz International is hiding a very dirty secret from its customers: Mondelēz continues to source egg ingredients from cruel, unsafe battery cage egg farms.
Battery-cage farms pack egg laying hens so tightly into tiny wire cages that they can’t even spread their wings or engage in any of their natural behaviors. Each hen is forced to live in a space roughly the size of an iPad and most will never see sunlight or breath fresh air for virtually their entire lives. Battery cages are so cruel and unsafe that their use is criminalized in the entire European Union and several states in the US.
A wide range of companies have pledged to completely eliminate cages with a firm timeline including McDonald’s, Burger King, Starbucks, Taco Bell, Dunkin’ Donuts, Compass Group, Aramark, Sodexo, and many more. Many of Mondelēz's direct competitors such as Nestle, Kellogg's, General Mills, Unilever, Grupo Bimbo, and Flowers Foods have already produced timelines to source exclusively cage-free eggs in many parts of the world.
Mondelēz has agreed to source 15% of their eggs from cage-free farms in the EU - it is time to let them know that this is not nearly good enough. Please join The Humane League and Albert Schweitzer Foundation in a global boycott of Mondelēz International’s brands and encourage their leadership to produce a global timeline to convert to sourcing exclusively cage-free eggs and investigate plant-based alternatives for egg products.
