Kroger Commits To Cage-Free Eggs By 2025

July 11, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
In its new sustainability report, which includes six new goals, Ohio-based Kroger Co. has pledged to transition to 100 percent cage-free eggs by 2025. The nine-year transition will ensure that eggs are readily available, safely produced, and affordably priced, the company said. The company also said it promises to buy 90 percent of its seafood – and all of its wild-caught seafood – from fisheries certified by the Marine Stewardship Council. Regarding the cage-free trend, CraftWorks Restaurants & Breweries (Colo.) said its nearly 200 restaurants will transition to serving cage-free eggs by 2022; Sonstegard Foods (S.D.), which earned a zoning permit for the half-million bird cage-free facility in February, has submitted plans to increase the size of the operation to 2.5 million birds.
