“We’re committed to responsible, sustainable practices extending to every facet of our business,” said Michael Mullen, senior vice-president of corporate and government affairs for The Kraft Heinz Co. “Making the move to source our eggs exclusively from cage-free hens builds on progress made by both Kraft and Heinz in previous years and reinforces our continuing pursuit of animal welfare improvements throughout our supply chain. Consumers have growing interest in responsible supply chain practices, and with Kraft Heinz products in over 98% of North American households, we’re committed to having an ongoing dialogue on the things that matter most to them.”The Kraft Heinz Co. joins the long list of companies committing to cage-free, including The Schwan Food Co., Target, ConAgra, Mondelez, Nestle USA, General Mills, The Campbell Soup Co. and The Kellogg Co.
