Sysco Corp will be the first major company to switch completely to cage-free eggs in its entire supply chain in the U.S. by 2026. The company supplies food to restaurants, healthcare and educational facilities, hotels and inns and hospitality businesses nationwide so this is a huge victory for animal rights activists.

“What this means is that distributors are going cage-fee,” David Coman-Hidy, executive director of The Humane League, told EcoWatch. “It’s going to impact the entire country.”

The label, “cage-free,” might have its issues, but it is definitely a step in the right direction. The majority of eggs we see through the U.S. come from hens confined in battery cages.
