7‑Eleven, Inc. announced today that it will work with its suppliers toward a goal of sourcing only cage-free eggs by 2025, based on available supply for all stores in the U.S. and Canada.
“7‑Eleven cares about the treatment of animals and switching to cage-free eggs demonstrates our concern,” said Jesus Delgado-Jenkins, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer for 7‑Eleven. “We believe that it is becoming important to our customers for us to serve more humanely-sourced eggs.”
