Food giant Kraft Foods has announced plans to switch 1 million eggs to cage-free in 2011, as reported by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) on November 11. The switch is in conjunction with the company’s animal-welfare program. “We recognize that animal welfare is an issue that resonates with customers, and we’re taking this step to address their concerns,” said Steve Yucknut, vice president of sustainability at Kraft Foods. The switch comes at a time when more and more food companies—such as Subway, Sonic, and Costco—are making commitments to using cage-free eggs both in their supply-chains and in wholesale.
