Number of Cage Free Shell eggs
Explanation: KPI breakdown reflects the recent (June 2021) update in our Cage Free Eggs Policy. Specifically, the focus on our own brand products, the separation of targets between shell eggs and liquid egg products and the change of ‘products with egg as an ingredient’ to ‘products with egg as the main ingredient’*. Hence, figures here refer to own brand shell egg products only. Improvement of farming conditions for laying hens by promoting alternative and more sustainable housing systems, i.e. barn systems and outdoor access systems (free range, organic – ‘enriched’ or ‘combi’ cage systems not allowed).
Target: All own brand shell eggs 100% cage-free in Western and Southern Europe (DE|AT|IT|PT|ES|BE|NL|FR) by the end of 2022 (DE, AT, BE, NL, IT achieved the 100% target in Q2 2020. FR, PT and ES on track to achieve), in Eastern Europe (EU) (HU|HR||PL|CZ/SK|RO|BG) by the end of 2025 and in remaining markets (IN|CN|PK|JP/RS/TR/RU/UA) until end of 2027.
For liquid egg products, the target for implementing an 100% cage free liquid egg own brand product range is 2030, unless local regulation suggests earlier; in which case local legislation prevails.
For cage-free eggs as main ingredient no target is applicable at the moment, however we are looking to set one in subsequent policy reviews.
