Australian Supermarket Goes Cage-Free

Woolworths takes an ethical step forward, announcing that all caged eggs will be taken off its shelves within the next five years.

Woolworths has announced that by 2018 it will no longer offer eggs that come from caged hens, continuing the store’s trend of cage-free offerings that has been going on for the last four years. In 2009, 30 percent of Woolworth’s eggs were cage-free, and that number has grown to 50 percent through 2013. The supermarket chain has also reported that it will phase out the use of cage eggs in its store-brand line of food products. Woolworths is not the only Australian supermarket involved in the popular cage-free trend—in 2012, Coles announced that it would take its brand of caged eggs off its shelves, freeing approximately 350,000 hens from cages.
