Nestlé switches to 100 percent cage-free egg supply

Nestlé says it is close to completing their  transition to a cage-free egg supply chain by 2020 in Europe and 2025 in Africa, Latin America, Oceania and the Middle East. This 2014 commitmentaims to make sure all eggs and its sources must be from hens raised without the use of cages, helping accelerate the egg industry’s move away from the caged confinement of laying hens.

Elissa Lane, deputy director of Humane Society International Farm Animals, stated: “Nestlé’s announcement that it will transition to a cage-free egg supply chain in Latin America, Oceania, the Middle East and Africa by 2025 is an important benchmark in the global move towards cage-free eggs. While the company also signalled that Asia would be included in this move ‘if conditions allow,’ we urge the company to commit to and meet the 2025 deadline for its supply chain in that region, as well.”

“Humane Society International is proud to support Nestlé on the implementation of this policy around the globe. With the world’s largest food companies improving animal welfare in their supply chains by eliminating eggs from hens confined in battery cages, Nestlé’s policy sends another clear message to the egg industry that the future of egg production is cage-free.”
