Target: Enrique Ostale, President and CEO of Walmart Latin America, India and Africa
Goal: Use only cage-free eggs in Walmart stores in Latin America.
In 2016, Walmart announced that it would only use cage-free eggs in North America by 2025, but the company has refused to extend the same policy to its stores in Latin America. By refusing to end the use of battery-cage farms in Latin America, Walmart is supporting farms that keep their birds in cages that are so small the birds cannot even stand up. By not issuing a cage-free policy in Latin America, Walmart is subjecting millions of chickens to a miserable life.
Many restaurants have announced cage-free egg policies for their branches in Latin America. This includes major fast food chains like Burger King and McDonalds. As one of the largest grocery stores in the world, if Walmart chooses to stop patronizing caged farms, it could help lead to the end of this cruel type of farming.
In order to truly show that it does not support battery-cage farms that treat chickens terribly, Walmart needs to use only cage-free eggs in its Latin American stores. Sign this petition to tell Walmart that you want its cage-free egg policy to extend to all of its stores across both North America and Latin America.
Dear Mr. Ostale,
I’m writing to ask you to extend the cage-free egg policy announced for North American Walmart to your stores in Latin America. By not extending the policy to your stores in Latin America, you’re still supporting farms that subject their chickens to terrible lives. These chickens spend all their time in the dark in cages that are the size of a standard piece of paper. They are not able to move around, and their short lives are miserable. By simply extending your cage-free policy to Latin America, Walmart will be able to help end these birds’ suffering.
Walmart’s decision to use only cage-free eggs in North America is commendable, but to make a true impact, you need to extend your policies to your many stores in Latin America. For the good of the chickens who are still stuck in small cages in the dark, please consider using only cage-free eggs in your Latin American stores.
