Cost will make an important change in the eggs it has for sale, and that is because the chain of stores announced that from now on it will sell only free-range chicken blanch.
Previously, 95% of Costco’s eggs are labeled cage-free hens, although eggs from China do not fall into that category. But a new facility in mainland China, which will house 50,000 cageless chickens, enable Costco’s entire global egg supply chain to come from non-cage birds.
It should be noted that this transition will take several years to complete.
“Animal welfare is part of Costco’s culture and responsibility, and he calls us to serve as guardians of the animals, the land and the environment entrusted to the company, ”the company says on its website, according to Mashed.
This step the company is taking to start selling cage-free eggs is just one of the steps the company has taken on behalf of animal welfare. Costco also audits its agricultural practices and seeks “responsible sourcing” of all its products.
