Your story stirs up my curiosity. I vitesid Santiago, but never the southern tip of Chile. Here is what Wikipedia has to say abt the region:"... 火地群島(西班牙語 Tierra del Fuego) 是南美洲最南端的島嶼群 由主島大火地島及周邊小島組成 .... 1520年 麥哲倫在其環球航行中發現該群島 他看見島上的印第安人燃起了許多煙柱 於是將該群島命名為火地群島 他以為那是印第安人準備襲擊他的船隊的信號 但其實那可能僅僅是因為閃電引起的天火 ... "I assume the natives also like to hunt seals and penguins :)

P.S. I need XRumer of only latest version - 12.0.6, all other versions are too old and are not effective!

Yes....and where are the Woolworths free range chickens - hardly ever available in the deli sections....and what about their dairy cows - don't tell me they feel like "loved" cows. That only serves to mislead the public! Woolworths must deliver on their promises.

I believe your company has the potential to lead the way for other supermarkets when it comes to free range products (beef, chicken, eggs, pork, lamb, etc). You have done such great work already! Loyal customers need you to finish what you started. I think it is also fair that activists ask you to voice what your blockers are as there may be folks who can offer creative solutions? The public want to work with you, please give us a chance.
Best wishes this Easter,
Nicola

It would be great to know exactly how 'free range' the chickens are.

I would pay a bit more for free range eggs in products. But, regardless of this, please find a way to lead the way! There are a zillion of your products that I can't buy anymore :(

Please Woolies, even if it costs more to make your products with free range eggs, don't you think maybe you could sacrifice one of your many other products and put this money to better use?
We really don't need 6 different varieties of jelly sweets.... we need humane conditions for these chickens...

While it is clear that Woolworths does employ some ethical processes in its business there is the strong sense that this is done mostly as a marketing tactic to appeal to ethical consumers. Woolworths would go a long way to being actually ethical if it made some business decisions based on ethical reasons apart from any marketing or financial considerations. Failure to be able to do that means Woolworths is just another coporate machine with a good brand design but no soul. Using only free range eggs in all products would be a substantial demonstration to customers that Woolworths is indeed committed to ethical practices beyond empty lip-service and spin.

Melody in Gauteng (Johannesburg)

Ban battery farming. I will not eat any more of your prepared foods.

I buy Woolworths eggs but I never buy their chicken unless it says free range. I find it hypocritical that Woolworths stocks battery chickens and uses battery eggs in their products - I would not have expected them to be a part of, and ergo condone, such practices.
Catherine in Gauteng (Johannesburg)

(14 March 2011)
Woolworths has been claiming to be a "sustainable" and "ethical" retailer for a long time now. I have had my doubts about the integrity of your claims - to me it always seems that they're based on very superficial actions, which are hyped up and in the end are no more than greenwashing. This has just confirmed it for me, I am very dissapointed in Woolworths and will no longer buy from you - there are other retailers out there who are offering a more ethical and environmentally friendly range of products!
Katherine in KwaZulu-Natal (Durban)

I'm a loyal Woolies customer, with a "Make a Difference" card that I diligently swipe, and feel betrayed by the misrepresentation of your commitment to green living.

Kirsten in Western Cape (Cape Town)

I try to buy from Woolworth's specifically because I want to support companies doing the right thing and I think Woolworth's tries to do just that. Please buy free-range eggs for your food production just as we buy the free-range eggs from you to make our food.

I have always trusted that Woolworths has integrity in their promise to the public. This is definately a
wake up call that Retailers are not to be trusted and each individual should take responsability for every choice that is made irrespective of what the media is saying.
Laura in Western Cape (Cape Town)

(21 September 2010)
I COMPLETELY understand that the organic and free range egg producers cannot keep up with demand. So stop demanding. We should all be using only a couple of eggs per week! Then we can all have eggs. So, start encouraging your shoppers to eat more fruit and veggies and less patries and egg containing products - it's bad for the chicken, bad for the environment, and bad for our health. It's a luxury we take for granted. I will happily pay 5 x the average egg price for an organic egg because it is produced with care and ethics. I really mean that.
Kathryn in Western Cape (All Areas)

(16 September 2010)
As a regular woolworths shopper I have been greatly dissapointed to discover that they were not using only free range eggs in their products, despite their committment to not selling battery eggs in their store. It seems a bit like false marketing.
Collette in Western Cape (Cape Town)

(28 August 2010)
If Woolworths is going to make such a strong campaign against the use of battery eggs, they should follow through with this fully. If it means that customers must pay more for products containing eggs, so be it. Those who do not care about free-range eggs can shop elsewhere and get cheaper prices. I think paying more for a product containing eggs is worth it if the eggs are free-range.

Kobus in Western Cape - Overberg

I am so disappointed to hear that your many and varied prepared foods contain eggs from battery hens. I have been buying only free range eggs for many years and was an activist in promoting free range eggs many years back as battery chicken farming is extremely cruel.

Andrew in Western Cape (Cape Town)

I admire Woolworths for its products, service and ethics. I applaud its free range eggs. But battery farming of poultry is a moral outrage and all such eggs should be banned.

Am going to stick with ethical co-op and wild organics...In fact been feeling less and less inclined to shop woolies or pick n pay for some time in order to buy local, support the small guys & enjoy slow food.

WOOLWORTHS SHOULD ONLY STOCK & USE FREE RANGE EGGS & CHICKENS. WOOLWORTHS SHOULD ALSO LABEL ALL PRODUCTS SO WE KNOW IF THEY ARE GM OR NOT.

More and more I am beginning to swee that Woolworths typefies corporate lip service. I think its only a matter of time before consumer markets start taking over from the corporate scam artists.
Cant you see ? That we have had so so so enough of this and we talk to each other on the net and through email. We asre not the anaethetised consumer any more.
I cannot tolerate this cruelty.

Battery eggs are produced by hens who live in cramped, caged conditions with a space allowance each of 75% of an A4 sheet of paper. Their beaks are always seared off and they do not have access to sunlight or the ability to exercise any of their basic behavioural needs such as laying an egg in a nest, dust-bathing, sun-bathing, foraging and scratching for food. After a year, the rate at which they lay eggs drops from one egg every 25 hours to one every 34 hours. They are no longer considered economically viable and are sent to cull farms where hawkers buy them for slaughter in informal settlements. Please join me in this petition which aims at ending the cruel and unnecessary practice of battery farming in South Africa.

Woolworths has taken a leading step toward the goal of a cruelty free farming when committing to free range eggs. I urge woolworths to continue with vigour on its path toward being a store that only offers its clients products that are ethical in every way. Each step is an example to all other chain stores and the public of compassionate business practice.

Dear Woolworths,

This is not the first time that it came to my attention that your ethics are not in place andthat you portray a dishonest image to the public. You show total disrespect by treating your customers as ignorent. Please start living your values and put your money where your mouth is. Stop making use of battery eggs.

For action please.

The internet publicity surrounding Woolworths and battery eggs is not doing Woolworths' image as a responsible retailer any good. The power of the internet is immense.
The more retailers stop supporting the battery hen farmers, the quicker they will go out of business. Is it really that difficult or costly to make this change & would others not follow if a big retail name like Woolworths do the ethical thing?

I am a loyal customer thanks to your efforts to go above and beyond in offering quality foods to your customers. I do however warn you that this is the second bit of misleading advertising I have endured from you the first being your "Non Genetically Modified" campaign. This has compromised my trust in you and has done far more damage than good to our relationship. What else are you untruthful about? PnP does not treat me like an idiot and is also putting in big effort. Need I say more!

Tina in Western Cape (All Areas)

(19 October 2009)
As a committed Woolworths customer, I strongly urge you to end any use of products using battery produced eggs.
I shall certainly not purchase any further products containing battery eggs.
Further, I would request that you extend this philosophy to your chicken products, so that they only contain free range birds.
I currently do not buy any chicken products at woolworths, other than the free range chicken pieces and would love to purchase more of your products.
I commend the work that you have done so far, but it does not go far enough. We need to put an end to the inhumane treatment of animals as a matter of urgency. You may not get many direct requests from our relatively apathetic public, but there is huge public support for compassionate food products, and your clients will certainly support you if you support us in making this change.
Jemimah in Western Cape (Cape Town)

I've always considered Woolworths as a company superior to other food-suppliers in the sense of quality and ethical business. When I found out about the battery eggs in your products I was and still am very disappointed. Why make so much effort to support the idea of free range, but not wholly follow through? It feels as if Woolworths thought it could dupe the consumer into believing the 'ethical' branding which you have created for yourselves. Note 'ethical' in brackets, as I will now doubt every single thing that WW tells me. I also think it was easy to get away with battery eggs in mixed products such as cakes etc, beacause most consumers trust WW without question, and won't think further to ask if the eggs in the products are free range- as you have created a very strong image of ethical business, and it was assumed by me and many other consumers that WW would live up to it. It seems now that it is not so. After this, and the gelatine in the yoghurts I am losing more and more confidence in WW and will not shop with you as often as I have. There is no way for me to 'check up' on your ethicalness, and after being duped a few times, I think its time to move on to farmers markets where I can make a more informed decision about my food.
Yours Sincerely
Esti Strydom
