US: Ben & Jerry’s switches to 100% cage-free eggs

Ice cream producer Ben & Jerry’s has announced that it is making a total transition to egg suppliers who use “Certified-Humane”, cage-free methods of egg production.

Ice cream producer Ben & Jerry’s has announced that it is making a total transition to egg suppliers who use “Certified-Humane”, cage-free methods of egg production.
 
The company claimed it was the first national food manufacturer to move towards a total transition to this form of production, adding that it was consistent with its mission and values. 


“Since we are the first national food manufacturer to make this transition, it has taken us more time than we expected to line up the significant supply of “Certified-Humane” cage-free eggs we require and to work out all of the logistics involved for our needs,” said CEO Walt Freese. “I speak for all of us at Ben & Jerry’s to say how pleased we are to announce this transition.”
 
Due to the significant investment necessary for Ben & Jerry’s to make this transition, it will be phased in over a four-year period, the company added.
