Why Fazer is committing to cage-free eggs
Fazer’s commitment to using cage-free eggs is part of the company’s sustainability efforts as animal welfare is one of our essential sustainability topics. Fazer’s sustainability goal of becoming 100% sustainably sourced puts extra effort on chosen value chains, such as egg production.
For Fazer, the commitment to cage-free eggs covers all of Fazer’s businesses and countries of operation. The commitment was created in collaboration with stakeholders and is based on discussions with different actors along the value chain. The progress in reaching the target is reported on an annual basis.
