Feb. 11, 2019


Shell-egg assortment to be cage-free by 2025.


The local brands of Ahold Delhaize USA care deeply about animal welfare, including the welfare of egg-laying hens. That's why the local brands have committed to working with suppliers to reach a 100 percent cage-free shell egg assortment by 2025. The local brands are working toward a 100 percent cage-free shell egg assortment first in private brand selection, which accounts for the majority of shell egg sales. The local brands will then continually increase overall supply of cage-free eggs with the goal of 100 percent cage-free in all shell eggs offerings by 2025 or sooner based on available supply. The local brands continue to listen to their customers on this issue, particularly with respect to consumer demand and affordability.
