Compass Group PLC, one of the world’s leading food and support services companies, announced a significant expansion to its existing cage-free egg policy with a commitment to source 100 percent cage-free eggs (both shell and liquid) globally by 2025. As part of the commitment and building on the progress made to date in its U.S. business, the company committed to achieving this throughout our U.S. operations by 2019.
Nicki Crayfourd, director of group health, safety and environment at Compass Group PLC, commented, “Improving the welfare of farm animals is a key focus for our business and we've supported the sourcing of cage free eggs since 2009. This commitment marks the next step in our journey and we look forward to continuing to work with partners such as Compassion in World Farming, Humane Society International and The Humane League who provide invaluable support and guidance.”
Compass Group operates in over 50,000 locations across 50 countries, resulting in a diverse and complex supply chain. Its global supply chain integrity standards provide a framework to manage its supply chain and work towards sourcing products in a more sustainable way.
