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 U.S., Canada and Australia by 2020.
This commitment has been achieved in the U.S. and Canada with 100% cage-free egg use for all Mars human food products in the two markets. As shared in 2019 though, 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, 76% of the volume covered by our commitment is cage-free.
