Cap Town


With the valued support of Cape Town Tourism, the Mother City is set to become a Cage Free Zone!


Imagine the freedom that a hen experiences when she is released from a life-time’s incarceration in a space allowance that is less than an A4 sheet of paper! With your support, the hens that supply Cape Town with eggs,  can experience this freedom


It all started last year when Mayor Patricia de Lille announced that animals are sentient beings, deserving of the Five Freedoms for animals.  With these words ringing in our ears, Compassion in World Farming (SA) started a campaign to encourage the city to  Walk the Talk of Mayor de Lille. 


Starting with the food court at the Civic Centre and then moving to Cape Town’s top restaurants, we asked the Executive Chefs to sign a pledge to use only free range or cage-free eggs. We had no idea  we would receive such wonderful support.

Would you like to be a VITAL part of our CAGE FREE campaign?

It doesn’t have to be in Cape Town. You can start a branch of Cage-Free in your own suburb, your own town.

Here’s how: 


*  DOWNLOAD the Pledge - and print it out...

*  Take copies of the Pledge to restaurants in your area and ask the chefs or managers  (depending on who is in charge of buying the eggs) to sign

*  Take a photo of the chef or manager (preferably while signing the pledge)

*  Scan them both in (high res if possible) and send both the photo and the signed pledge to Kelly Schlesinger for uploading here

Budget constraints ?


If the chef/manager says he/she can’t abandon battery eggs because of budget constraints, please ask him/her to get in touch with

Windmeul Eggs which is assisting our Cage-Free initiative with a special price for its James the Freeranger eggs  -
