Tesco to stop selling caged eggs by the end of 2025 in its Central European stores
The shopping habits of customers are continuously changing. Now, besides price increasingly more shoppers are interested in where products come from and how they are produced . To meet these expectations Tesco in Central Europe is taking steps to make sure that by the end of 2025 no eggs from caged hens will be available in its stores, including both own brand and branded eggs.
Jamie Walker, CE Product Director commented:
“Our decision on caged hens is in line with the Tesco approach to ensuring sustainable sourcing and improving animal welfare. We will be working in partnership with our suppliers to move to 100% cage-free eggs.”
Tesco already offers a wide range of different types of eggs for customers to choose from, including barn, free range and organic eggs. During the transition to 100% cage free eggs Tesco and its suppliers will continue to meet the strong existing standards and welfare specifications for egg production.
This initiative is part of Tesco’s efforts to ensure it sources its products in a sustainable and ethical way and follows a commitment by Tesco UK to end the sale of caged eggs. Wherever it operates, Tesco aims to provide high quality products at attractive prices, whilst tackling the environmental and social issue challenges customers care about.
