TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — In response to a input from animal rights groups, Carrefour
Taiwan announced on May 15 that it will shift to only selling cage free eggs by 2025, reported China Times.
Convinced that “treating hens well is the only way to get good eggs,” Carrefour Taiwan announced that it would start an egg revolution. At a press conference held on May 15, the Taiwanese branch of the French multinational retailer, in collaboration with NGOs and egg farmers, announced that it would make “four egg commitments,” including the creation of a “cage-free egg area” by the end of 2018.
The company said that in 2019 it will begin “cage free feeding” of the hens for its branded eggs, with the eventual goal of having 100 percent of all eggs sold its store come from cage-free chickens. [FULL STORY]
