Compass Group PLC, one of the leading food and support services companies, has announced expansion of its existing cage-free egg policy with a commitment to source 100 per cent cage-free eggs (both shell and liquid) globally by 2025.
As part of the commitment and building on the progress made to date in its US business, Compass Group has committed to achieve this throughout its US operations by 2019. Nicki Crayfourd, director – health, safety and environment, Compass Group PLC, commented, “Improving the welfare of farm animals is a key focus for our business and we’ve supported the sourcing of cage-free eggs since 2009. This commitment marks the next step in our journey and we look forward to continuing to work with partners such as Compassion in World Farming, Humane Society International and The Humane League, who provide invaluable support and guidance.”
