The commitment involves shell eggs, liquid eggs and egg products.
We are committed to making this positive change in our hotels around the world,” Inge Huijbrechts, Radisson Hotel Groups’ global senior vice president for responsible business. “The switch to cage-free egg supplies will require time and investment, but we will work closely with our suppliers and hotel owners to drive meaningful progress.”
The company, in a press release issued on November 15, announced that it would publish its commitment in all key native languages, and will publicly report on the progress toward meeting the goal on an annual basis.
Radisson’s move was praised by animal activist group The Humane League, which stated it was “delighted,” that the “welfare of animals raised for food is a high priority” for Radisson Hotel Group.
