On Saturday, December 23rd, East Bay Animal Advocates will launch its weekly outreach campaign efforts at Lunardi's Supermarket.
As a high-end grocery chain in the San Francisco Bay Area, Lunardi's proclaims its purported commitment to excellence: "We can explain our prices, but we don't ever want to have to justify our quality."
Recently, East Bay Animal Advocates documented conditions at one of Lunardi's egg suppliers (http://www.LunardisAbuse.com). Shockingly, Lunardi's still sells eggs from chickens confined in overcrowded, wire cages.
Citing concerns over animal care, East Bay Animal Advocates has contacted Lunardi’s numerous times this autumn without a single response. Moreover, Lunardi's is the lead competitor of Andronico's Market, which stopped selling battery cage eggs in October 2006. In order to advance the grocery chain's commitment to excellence, East Bay Animal Advocates is asking Lunardi’s to stop selling battery cage eggs at its stores.
