Animal rights activists target S-Group over battery farm eggs

2 January 2019, at 12:00am

ISRAEL - Animal rights activists have launched a campaign protesting the sale of eggs laid by battery farm hens at some of the S-Group’s Prisma hypermarkets. The activists have put up signs in some of the group’s stores in Pori, Tampere and Jyväskylä

The signs attached to shopping cards inform consumers that layers have about as much room in battery farm conditions as the sign itself occupies. S-Group has confirmed the presence of the adverts in some of its stores.

The Rights for Animals NGO is currently gathering support for an online petition that calls on the duopolist to stop selling eggs from chickens kept in cramped battery farms. However Juhis Ranta, head of the animal rights group’s corporate campaigns said that the NGO is not behind the campaign; rather individual protestors have been putting up the advertising in stores.
