Auchan Egg Supplier Exposed

Sentient has obtained a whistleblower’s footage shot of an Auchan’s egg supplier company in Taiwan and reveals chickens locked in cages too small for them to stretch wings.

Auchan is a French international supermarket chain, one of the biggest in the world, with branches in France and 15 other countries. Video footage from two farms in Taiwan clearly show chickens kept in very small and very filthy battery cages, with excreta piling up. These birds cannot even stretch their wings! This inhumane farm practice was outlawed in most western countries, and replaced by cage-free eggs.

Ironically, RT Mart’s parent company – Auchan, has an animal welfare policy in which it states that it will stop selling caged eggs in France and in some other countries.
