London Councils: End cage cruelty

We’re joining up with London Food Link to ask London councils to drop cage cruelty from the menu in the capital’s schools and council buildings.

An impressive 15 London councils are proud holders of our Good Egg Award for committing to source only non cage eggs for their catering. Disappointingly, this means 18 could still be sanctioning cage cruelty.

Good news: if you live in London, you can help contribute to a cage-free capital. We’re encouraging our London-based supporters to take action by emailing their council urging them to go cage free.

If your borough is already a Good Egg, you can still take the action by sending a message congratulating council chiefs and asking them to take the next step towards better welfare by working towards another of Compassion’s awards.

Our awards are designed to raise the bar for animal welfare across the food industry and positive changes in public procurement would make a difference to huge numbers of animals every year.
