The UK’s biggest egg producer, Noble Foods, commits to go 100% cage-free

Animal Equality praises Noble Foods for joining all UK supermarkets, and others, in committing to end the cruel confinement of hens in Britain.

Noble Foods, the UK’s biggest egg producer, has announced a commitment to producing solely cage-free egg production by 2025. The decision, which will reduce the suffering of millions of birds every year, comes just days after Animal Equality released shocking scenes of suffering filmed on a Noble Foods caged-hen farm in Dorset.

While cage-free doesn’t mean cruelty-free, Noble Foods is taking an important step toward improving conditions for animals who suffer tremendously on industrialised farms. Cramming birds in cages is a horrific practice. Studies have shown that birds are social and sensitive creatures with intelligence on par with a toddler. Yet they are forced to live in filthy wire cages with no semblance of a natural life nor the ability to engage in most natural behaviours.

Millions of hens will no longer spend their entire lives standing on painful wire floors thanks to this commitment from Noble.

We are incredibly proud to have played a part in this landmark decision and congratulate our friends at The Humane League UK for their tireless efforts over the past six months to make this happen.

Of course, you can help end the suffering of hens today by choosing to leave eggs off your plate! Visit www.loveveg.uk for delicious egg-free recipes and products.

On Wednesday 29th November, Councillors on the Planning Committee for North East Lincolnshire Council approved proposals for a controversial on-land intensive salmon farm in Cleethorpes, with four opposing and seven in favour. With plans to produce 5,000 tonnes of dead fish per year, there are no other fish farms of this scale in operation currently in the UK. Once constructed, the facility will be one of the largest in the world.

Each year more than 200,000 tonnes of foie gras made by force-feeding are imported into the UK. Its production is so cruel that it is illegal to make in the UK, yet we hypocritically continue to permit imports. Previously unpublished images taken inside several duck farms in France show the terrible animal suffering involved in foie gras production.

Following conversations with Animal Equality, Giles Watling MP successfully tabled a Westminster Debate, speaking up for millions of ducks and geese trapped in cruel foie gras farms.
