Pepperidge Factory Farm

Animal advocates appeal to Pepperidge Farm to drop its current egg suppliers and switch to cage-free eggs.

This week, animal-rights group East Bay Animal Advocates (EBAA) launched a new campaign titled Pepperidge Factory Farm, asking Pepperidge Farm to switch from inhumane egg suppliers to cage-free eggs. The campaign cites a 2009 Compassion Over Killing investigation that revealed cruel practices at a Pepperidge Farm egg supplier. EBAA is appealing to Douglas Conant, president and CEO of Pepperidge Farm's parent company, Campbell Soup Company, to make the switch from factory farm eggs to more humane, cage-free eggs. The group is asking supporters to visit its website and voice their own opinions by sending Conant a personal request to stop supporting factory farming.
