Target: Carlos Guerra, CEO of Giraffas
Goal: Thank restaurant company for committing to using cage-free eggs.
Giraffas, a Brazilian restaurant company, has made a commitment to go 100 percent cage-free with the eggs in their supply chain by 2025. Giraffas operates more than 400 restaurants throughout Brazil, and they’re one of the largest restaurant companies in the country. Because of this, their decision to go cage-free will save thousands of chickens from spending their lives in horrid battery cages that are so small they cannot even stretch their wings. Giraffas also has the power to inspire other Brazilian companies to follow their lead and go cage-free.
Across Latin America and in Brazil itself, there has been a movement towards using cage-free eggs. Arcos Dorados, the company that operates McDonalds in 19 countries in Latin America, has committed to switching to cage-free eggs. Alsea, Grupo Bimbo, and Sodexo have also made commitments to use cage-free eggs in Latin America and Brazil. Thousands of restaurants and companies in Latin America are going cage-free, showing that this movement for a more humane treatment towards chickens is not slowing down.
Giraffas’ decision to go cage-free will save countless chickens from a short and miserable life. Sign this petition to thank Giraffas for choosing to use only eggs from chickens that are raised in humane conditions.
Dear Mr. Guerra,
Thank you for committing to using only cage-free eggs in your supply chain in all 400 of your restaurants. This move will save countless chickens from living in horrible conditions. Factory farmed chickens spend their lives in battery-cages that are so tiny the birds cannot even stretch their wings. They’re packed into dark rooms with hundreds of other scared and miserable birds, and they rarely see the sun. With Giraffas’ move to cage-free eggs, you’ll no longer be supporting farmers who subject their birds to this torturous life.
Your decision to go 100 percent cage-free with your eggs is the right choice. It will also help to inspire change across Brazil, and it could lead to other companies using only cage-free eggs. Thank you for standing up for chickens and for providing a model for your competitors to follow.
