Retailer commits to cage-free eggs
In line with the trend of consumers caring where their food comes from, a local retailer is making a commitment to source only cage-free eggs by 2025.
Meijer said today that it’s setting the goal, which it said is consistent with other retailers, restaurants and food makers.
Currently, Meijer sells traditional, free range and cage-free eggs, with a majority coming from Michigan farms.
"Although our current volume of cage-free egg sales is relatively low, we continue to see shopping trends shifting toward cage free," said Peter Whitsett, EVP of Merchandising, Meijer.
"We are in the business of providing customers with choices, and setting this goal will ensure we are ready for the transition when our customers are."
