Panera Bread is hopping on the cage-free egg bandwagon. The chain announced that it will use 100 percent cage-free eggs by 2020.
This will apply to shell eggs, hardboiled and liquid egg whites and eggs used in pastries, souffles and dressings. The company is now using 21 percent cage-free eggs, a 3 percent improvement from 2014.
Panera’s move will affect its nearly 2,000 Panera Bread and St. Louis Bread Co. stores in the U.S.
Panera “is demonstrating that social responsibility goes hand-in-hand with being a successful national restaurant brand,” a senior food policy director for the Human Society said in a statement.
