Target Transitions to Eggs From Cage-Free Hens

Consumerist reports that Target is transitioning to only selling eggs from uncaged hens by 2025. Target made the announcement on Twitter that it’s working with suppliers to offer more cage-free eggs in the U.S., with the goal of completing the changeover in the next 9 years.

“Target is committed to the humane treatment of animals, and we believe they should be raised in clean, safe environments free from cruelty, abuse or neglect,” the company said in a statement on its site. “In January 2016, we announced that we will work with our suppliers to increase our offerings of cage-free shell eggs nationwide, working toward a 100 percent cage-free shell egg assortment by 2025, based on available supply.”

Though others in the food sector have already ventured down the cage-free path —Subway, Dunkin’ Donuts, McDonald’s, Taco Bell, and Panera Bread, to name a few — Target is one of only a few retailers that have made the same pledge so far.
