Wed Jul 12 2006 (Updated 12/29/06)Week of Action To Target Andronico's Battery-Caged Eggs
Wed Jul 12 2006 (Updated 12/29/06)Five Day Advocacy Event to Protect Chickens
Andronico's Market, a grocery chain in the San Francisco Bay Area, plays an important role in promoting humane business practices. The company claims it is "committed to the highest standards of animal husbandry." Yet Andronico's still sells eggs from chickens confined to battery cages. East Bay Animal Advocates (EBAA) recently documented conditions at Andronico's brandname egg supplier — NuCal Foods, Inc. The undercover footage shows intensive confinement of chickens in wire cages. Several other grocers, including Whole Foods Market and Wild Oats Natural Marketplace, have already adopted policies to carry only cage-free eggs.
East Bay Animal Advocates has called for a week of action at Andronico's locations in Palo Alto and Berkeley, Sunday, July 16 through Thursday, July 20. The plans involve five consecutive days of demonstrations in front of the Andronico's grocery stores at Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto and on Solano Avenue in Berkeley. Everyone interested in supporting this campaign is encouraged to attend one or more days at either location or to set up another demonstration at any one of eight other Andronico's locations. Through leafletting, holding signs, and educating customers, EBAA volunteers will encourage Andronico's to stop selling eggs from caged hens and to adopt an exclusively cage-free egg policy like other socially responsible grocery chains.
