Cage-Free Eggs at Meijer
Meijer recently set a goal to sell only eggs sourced from cage-free farms eggs by 2025, joining a group of food retailers, restaurant chains and food manufacturers
“Although our current volume of cage-free egg sales is relatively low, we continue to see shopping trends shifting toward cage free,” said Peter Whitsett, Executive Vice President of Merchandising. “We are in the business of providing customers with choices, and setting this goal will ensure we are ready for the transition when our customers are.”
Currently we sell numerous varieties of eggs, including cage free, free range and traditional. The majority of the eggs sold in our stores are sourced from farms in Michigan – many of which we’ve worked with for more than 50 years.
Our largest supplier is Herbruck’s Poultry Ranch Inc. in Saranac. In 2015, Herbruck’s announced it was undertaking a $45 million expansion to increase its organic and cage-free production facilities.
