 CAGE-FREE TRACKER  

Following companies’ advances toward a cage-free future in Latam

ELIMINATING CAGES

In recent years, dozens of companies have published cage-free commitments for laying hens. This means we’re a few steps closer to a cage-free future. But this is just the beginning. Companies must be kept accountable while transitioning: monitoring progress and demanding transparency are the two main goals of the Cage-Free Tracker.

WHY CAGE-FREE?

Egg production in Latin America has grown in the last few years but over 90% of egg-laying hens still spend their lives in conventional battery cages. These, are considered one of the worst practices against animals and cause them immense suffering.
