Grill’d partners with RSPCA to ‘say no’ to battery cage eggs

Burger chain Grill’d has partnered with the RSPCA to raise awareness about the use of battery cage eggs in food services across Australia.

The campaign asks Australians to sign a petition against the use of battery eggs which will also put them into a draw to win an overnight stay at the restaurant Brae.

According to the minute long video starring Grill’d founder and managing director, Simon Crowe, approximately 11 million chickens are in battery cages to produce eggs for Australia’s food suppliers.

Heather Neil, CEO at RSPCA Australia, said in a statement: “Right now, nearly three quarters of Australia’s hens have a miserable existence confined to battery cages, and while consumers are buying more cage-free in the supermarket, the vast majority of eggs used in food services are still coming from hens in cages.

“For the first time in more than 15 years we have an opportunity to change this, and we’re absolutely delighted to have Grill’d supporting our campaign to make sure Australians know about it.”

Crowe said: ““At Grill’d we have been serving free range eggs since opening our doors in 2004. We are proud and passionate to get behind the RSPCA campaign to end battery caged farming for hens.

“This gives us the opportunity to help spread the word about an important cause and support the movement to be good eggs.”
