Festival Foods Going to Cage-Free Eggs in 2025
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 07/15/2016

A Wisconsin-based grocery chain is the latest company to announce it will only sell cage-free eggs by 2025. Festival Foods says their nine-year plan will depend on availability, customer demand and supply.

"Festival Foods recognizes this change will require considerable modifications to our suppliers' infrastructure and equipment," said Festival Foods CEO Mark Skogen. "The 2025 implementation means that we will meet guest demands while also ensuring adequate time for suppliers to transition their production method."

Founded in Onalaska in 1945, Festival Foods is a family- and employee-owned company that employs 6,300 workers and operates 23 supermarkets around the state.

Earlier this year, Wal-Mart Stores said it will aim to phase out the sale of eggs from caged hens by 2025, joining the likes of other companies like Kroger Foods, Kraft Heinz, ConAgra Foods, McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's.
