Land O'Lakes Cruelty

Is Land O'Lakes trying to profit from empty promises to consumers?

For years, consumers have been demanding better animal welfare standards from food providers. More than 400 companies, including Land O'Lakes, have responded by committing to eliminate caged eggs from their supply chains.

Competitors like General Mills, Nestlé, and Conagra Brands (parent company to brands like Marie Callender's, Healthy Choice, and Banquet) are reporting progress, if not already fulfilling their commitments. Meanwhile, Land O'Lakes is refusing to be transparent about its cage-free egg progress. Land O'Lakes is failing to publicly report on a promise it made years ago and it continues to keep its consumers in the dark. What progress has Land O'Lakes made towards its cage-free egg commitment?

Join the movement in fighting corporate greed by asking Land O'Lakes to publicly report on the promise it made to stop supporting the cruel caging of hens!

Why Cage-Free?


Egg-laying hens are forcefully shoved inside wire cages, and on average, each hen is only afforded as little as 67 square inches of cage space — less than a single sheet of letter-sized paper on which to live her entire life. This intense confinement is the main source for frustration, injuries, and in many cases death.


Foot and claw damage are more frequent in cages than in other systems, with lesions, fissures, and twisted or broken claws resulting from stepping on sharp wiring every day. Often, other body parts are caught in the caging, which results in fractured or broken bones, deformities, and further feather wear.

Mental Anguish

Like any animal, chickens are highly motivated to perform natural behaviors. These behaviors include nesting, perching, scratching, foraging, and exploring. Caged chickens are denied all of these natural behaviors, causing them severe distress and frustration.

Progress on the Issue

Many leading food companies are reporting on their progress toward being 100% cage-free, including these:
