Nestlé has set a goal to source only eggs from cage-free hens for all its food products globally by 2025 in a bid to help drive welfare improvements for egg-laying hens.
According to a statement from the firm, the pledge includes all shell eggs and egg products (such as whole egg powder and liquid, and egg white powder and liquid) directly sourced as ingredients by Nestlé.
In Europe and the US, it is expected the transition will be made by the end of 2020. For the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and Oceania it will do so by 2025.
For Asia, the company ‘will aim for the same transition period as conditions allow’.
Nestlé stressed that in parts of the world, such as Europe, it’s eggs are already from cage-free sources.
The company said: “Switching to cage-free supplies worldwide requires time and investment. We will manage this in a sustainable and cost effective way during the implementation period ensuring consumers continue to access affordable high-quality foods throughout.
“We look forward to working with our suppliers, farmers, civil society and customers to drive progress.”
