Dierbergs’ Long-Term Plans Regarding Cage-Free Eggs

Dierbergs’ Long-Term Plans Regarding Cage-Free Eggs



For Immediate Release: June 2,2016

Dierbergs St. Louis roots date back to 1854 when all eggs were cage free.

The company still carries cage-free today, alongside organic, free-range, pasture-raised, Omega-3 fortified, brown eggs, double yolk eggs, non-GMO and conventional varieties at varying prices.

Dierbergs is working towards a goal that all eggs in our supply chain will be cage-free by 2025. We are hoping that there will be an adequate and dependable supply and pricing that is accessible to all of our customers.

As the egg industry evolves, Dierbergs will continue to evaluate the impact and timing on cage-free egg supply, variety and price.

Sustainability and the humane treatment of animals in our supply chain is important to us as a company and to our suppliers, and our discussions are underway. We welcome the improvements the industry is making to enhance animal welfare and to increase the supply of affordable, cage-free eggs.
