30,000 stocking density postcards delivered to ACCC

Complaints are still being lodged about plans by the Australian Egg Corporation to introduce a new standard which will allow farms running up to 20,000 to label their eggs as free range.

30,000 individual postcards of complaint have been delivered to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission protesting about the planned changes. Consumers and free range egg farmers have battled against the exploitation of the industry by corporate egg producers and have demanded that stocking densities for free range hens be capped at 1,500 per hectare.

To ensure that the ACCC's final decision is similar to its interim judgement please make sure that your voice is heard before the end of this month.
