Morrisons Joins Other UK Retailers In Pledge To Go Cage-Free

Morrisons has added its name to the list of retailers pledging to go cage-free with all whole-shell eggs by 2025.

The UK retailer's announcement comes soon after Lidl, Aldi, Tesco and Sodexo also pledged to go cage-free, demonstrating that the UK movement in support of cage-free eggs is gathering momentum.

In the US in April, retail giant Walmart announced a move towards 100% cage-free eggs by 2025.

Dr Tracey Jones, director of food business at Compassion in World Farming, says, “Just two weeks ago, I congratulated Tesco on their decision to go cage-free and expressed the hope that it would be the catalyst for others to follow.

“With Morrisons, Iceland, Aldi and Sodexo all pledging to go cage-free this week, it would seem that the cage-free movement in the UK has developed serious traction and continues to gain momentum.”


Sainsbury’s, the Co-operative, Waitrose and M&S have all long banished caged eggs.
