We continue to strengthen our commitment to acquire Cage-Free eggs
Brazil joins the list of markets that already have 100% Cage-Free supply chains, such as Costa Rica, Colombia and Peru.
In order to achieve sustainable sourcing, we continue to promote initiatives and actions guided by our socio-environmental strategy, Recipe for the Future. Among them, we work continuously to promote animal welfare, ensuring cruelty-free animal breeding processes and providing the best industry standards to guarantee a good quality of life for them. Therefore, we are committed to moving towards a supply chain that is 100% cage-free eggs by 2025.
In Brazil, with the return of Egg Cheese Bacon, Double Egg Cheese Bacon and Egg Burger sandwiches to the breakfast menu in restaurants, we have started to buy only eggs from cage-free hens in the country, taking a big step towards achieving the Company’s goal.
The system, known as Cage-Free, aims to improve the welfare of the hens so that they can express their natural behaviors, while ensuring all favorable conditions for them to remain fully protected.
