As part of the company's ongoing commitment to improve sustainability in its supply chain, Snyder's-Lance, Inc. plans to switch to 100 percent cage-free eggs for all its products that use eggs. The company will consistently increase its percentage of cage-free eggs each year and reach 100 percent by the end of 2025.
To meet sustainability goals, Snyder's-Lance is committed to utilizing products and practices, which reduce negative effects on the environment. For example, Snyder's-Lance made a step forward in its sustainability efforts when it opened the largest ground-based solar farm in Pennsylvania in 2011, which saves 30 percent of total energy costs in Hanover. Other initiatives have included development of renewable and compostable packaging and more aggressive recycling projects in manufacturing facilities.
Companies that have already committed to using cage-free eggs include Walmart, Ahold, Supervalu, McDonald’s, Denny’s, Wendy’s, Taco Bell, ConAgra Foods, Mondelez International, Nestle and General Mills Inc.
