Barilla Goes Cage-Free

Barilla becomes the first pasta-maker to go cage-free, switching 45 percent of its eggs to cage-free for 2011.

The world’s largest pasta making company, Chicago-based Barilla, is the first in its industry to join the cage-free movement. Barilla is committed to using cage-free for 45 percent of its eggs in 2011. In a letter to The Humane Society of the United States, the company wrote that its policy is to “take into consideration not only the health and wellbeing of people, but also the health and wellbeing of animals.” So far, other major companies that have made the transition into using cage-free eggs include Kraft, Sara Lee, Burger King, Subway, Denny’s, and Costco.
