INFOGRAPHIC: Cage-free egg pledges continue in May

Since late April, 30 more companies have committed to transition to 100-percent cage-free egg supply

The number of grocery stores, restaurant chains, foodservice companies, food processors and travel companies to commit to a 100-percent cage-free egg supply has continued to grow.

Since an infographic listing the companies that in 2016 committed to commit to use, serve and sell only cage-free eggs was published on WATTAgNet in April 27, 30 more companies have announced similar commitments.

The infographic has been updated to include all companies to make cage-free pledges so far in 2016.

The majority of the new additions to the list have set 2025 as the target date to complete the transition to a 100-percent cage-free egg supply. However, several businesses have gone with earlier dates.

Earl’s, a restaurant chain with locations in the U.S. and Canada, and Monoprix, a French retailer, have already transitioned to serving only cage-free eggs.

Moxie’s Bar and Grill will complete the transition by 2017. Wyndham Hotels has vowed to complete the transition in 2018.

The Hershey Company has agreed to source only cage-free eggs by 2020.

Companies that made similar commitments prior to 2016 are not included in this infographic, but a similar infographic of companies that in the last six months of 2015 vowed to use cage-free eggs can be seen on WATTAgNet.
