Please consider supporting our friend’s epetition. Battery eggs are now banned in the EU. Britain is complying (quite rightly) with the new legislation, but we are still accepting egg imports from other EU countries which are not currently complying. This means that your eggs may not be as ethical as you would like, but also, it puts British farmers at a real disadvantage, because other EU farmers can obviously produce battery eggs cheaper than our farmers can produce non-battery farmed eggs. Our friend wrote the petition - he is not trying to create a situation where all egg imports are banned; just those which do not comply with the EU legislation.
