Organizer/AuthorEast Bay Animal Advocates
Join East Bay Animal Advocates for our chicken campaign launch with a National Call-In to Lunardi’s. Between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PST, call (650) 588-7507 and urge the company to adopt a cage-free egg policy.

Lunardi's Supermarket, a high-end grocery chain in the San Francisco Bay Area, proclaims it purported commitment to excellence: "We can explain our prices, but we don't ever want to have to justify our quality."

Although the company offers an array of free-range and cage-free egg products, Lunardi's shockingly still sells eggs from chickens confined in battery cages. Moreover, Lunardi's is the lead competitor of Andronico's Market, which stopped selling battery cage eggs this month.

Recently, East Bay Animal Advocates documented conditions at Lunardi's battery-cage egg supplier. The undercover footage shows intensive confinement of chickens in tiny cages. Citing concerns over animal welfare, East Bay Animal Advocates has contacted Lunardi’s five times this fall without a single response.

Lunardi’s plays an important role in promoting animal-friendly business practices. In order to advance the company’s commitment to excellence, EBAA is asking Lunardi’s to stop supporting this abusive industry practice.
