The Coalition for Sustainable Egg Supply held its second annual meeting on September 27, in Rosemont, Ill.

At the meeting, researchers participating in the Coalition’s Laying Hen Housing Sustainability Research Project reported on progress from its commercial-scale laying hen housing research to evaluate multiple aspects of sustainability, including environmental impact, food safety, worker safety, animal health and well-being, and food affordability. CSES says it believes a significant gap exists in scientific knowledge related to the sustainability impacts of laying hen housing.
