Want to Help Make Long Lasting Change for Animals? Join the Animal Justice Action Team!

At Animal Justice, we believe working on corporate change has the potential to make a meaningful, long-lasting impact for hundreds of thousands of animals. Convincing a grocery store, restaurant, or hotel group to change their policies can help end some of the worst practices on factory farms and protect millions of animals from widespread suffering.

The Animal Justice Action Team aims to do just that.

Our Action Team is a group of Animal Justice supporters who unite to hold corporations accountable for causing suffering and encourage companies to remove the worst forms of animal cruelty from their supply chains. 

Members of the team can expect to receive two weekly emails with quick and clear actions for animals, no matter their location.

Loblaws Breaks Cage-Free Promise

A major campaign being supported by the Animal Justice Action Team is targeting the Loblaw Group of Companies, asking them to honour their promise of going cage-free by 2025. Loblaw owns major grocery chains including Loblaws, No Frills, Independent, and Real Canadian Superstore. Loblaw also owns Shoppers Drug Marts across the country, and many other companies.

In 2016, Loblaws announced it would stop selling eggs from hens confined in cages in all their stores by 2025. However, the company has now backed away from this deadline, and is refusing to share a new timeline for getting caged eggs out of their supply chain. 

Keeping hens in cages is one of the worst abuses in the animal agriculture industry. Hens are kept in small wire cages, often with so little space that they can’t even stretch their necks upwards or fully open their wings. These cages are used to confine as many animals as possible at a low cost to farmers. Cages are stacked on top of one another in warehouses, and a single factory egg farm may confine tens of thousands of hens at a time.

Loblaws is one of Canada’s largest buyers and sellers of meat, dairy, and eggs. Convincing them to stop selling eggs from caged birds can have a tremendous impact on hens and their overall welfare.
