Since 2011, Mars uses 100% cage-free eggs for all human food products (e.g., confectionery, rice products and sauce) in Europe. In 2016, Mars further committed to using 100% cage-free eggs for all human food products in the US, Canada and Australia by 2020.
We are on track to meet this commitment in the US and Canada. However, due to challenges in the marketplace, we will achieve 100% cage-free eggs in Australia by 2025.
We are currently working with suppliers and the broader industry to deliver our commitment and will continue to share progress on our website. Currently, just over half (52%) of the volume covered by our commitment is cage free.
