General Mills Goes Cage-Free

Food manufacturer General Mills announces its commitment to switching 1 million of its eggs to cage-free.

General Mills, food manufacturer of brands including Betty Crocker, Bisquick, Larabar, and more, has committed to switching 1 million of its eggs to cage-free. The company will be joining several companies—Kraft Foods, Barilla, Subway, and Unilever, amongst others—in making the switch to use cage-free eggs. “General Mills and the food manufacturing industry are helping the push to move the egg industry from confining hens in cruel and inhumane cages,” says Josh Balk, director of corporate policy for the Humane Society of the United States’ (HSUS) factory farming campaign. According to HSUS, cage-free hens have two to three times more space to move than caged hens.
