BJ’s to Source All Cage-free Eggs by 2022
In an article published by progressivegrocer.com explains how BJ’s Wholesale Club will transition its supply at all of its locations of whole-shell eggs from cage-free farms by 2022.
“In cage-free egg production, hens aren’t locked up in cages and can interact with flock mates in a large enclosed barns. By contrast, in caged systems, hens can’t even fully spread their wings.”
“‘BJ’s and our members are growing more concerned about where our food is coming from, how it is grown, and the welfare of the animals and people that are involved in the supply chain,’ explained Rob Johnson, BJ’s dairy buyer.”
BJ’s Wholesale Club is working toward making better options for their members with cage-free eggs.
