ALSEA WILL STOP USING EGGS FROM CAGED CHICKENS
Mexico City, August 26, 2016 – Alsea, the leading restaurant operator in Latin America and Spain, announced that it will work with its egg suppliers in those countries to promote a transition to a supply of eggs from cage-free chickens.
Alsea is convinced of the importance of encouraging animal protection and well-being. For this reason, Alsea will foster with its egg suppliers a supply of cage-free eggs, with the objective that by 2025, or sooner if possible, all the eggs used in its establishments will come from cage-free chickens.
This commitment requires the participation of the main egg producers in the countries where we operate to provide enough cage-free eggs to fulfill market demand, in the economic conditions that are affordable for consumers.
The company is convinced that with this type of action it will be able to contribute to generating a process of change towards a practice that will positively impact animal well-being.
