Since 2011, Mars uses 100% cage-free eggs for all human food products (e.g., confectionery, rice products and sauce) in Europe. In 2016, Mars further committed to using 100% cage-free eggs for all human food products in the U.S., Canada and Australia by 2020.
We are on track to buy 100% cage-free eggs in the U.S. and Canada by the end of 2020. However, due to challenges in the marketplace, we will achieve 100% cage-free eggs in Australia by 2025.
We are currently working with suppliers and the broader industry to deliver our commitment and will continue to share progress on our website. Currently, 59% of the volume covered by our commitment is cage-free.
