Action Alert: Barren Battery Cage Ban

The EU ban on barren battery cages for chickens came into effect on 1st January 2012, however, millions of hens across Europe are still living in illegal cages, with one of the worst nations in terms of non-compliance with the ban being Italy; according to Compassion in World Farming, industry estimates show that non-compliance with the ban may be at least 41%: equivalent to tens of millions of Italian hens suffering every day in these inhumane and cramped conditions.

Please show your support for the ban (and CIWF’s campaign) by writing to the appropriate Italian minister.  Thank you.

CIWF has also learned that, despite having twelve years to prepare for the ban, there are 30 egg producers in the UK who are non-compliant.  Please show your support for the ban by writing to DEFRA.  Thank you.

DEFRA promised those cages would be outlawed - It's not us who should be locked up
