Snyder's-Lance to switch to cage-free eggs

FBR Staff Writer Published 09 March 2012

US-based snack food company Snyder's-Lance has announced that it has begun switching to cage-free eggs as a part of its efforts to create a more sustainable supply chain.

According to the company, it will be using cage-free eggs to produce cookies, breakfast treats and other products.

Snyder's-Lance communications and community relations director Sid Levy said the company is committed to using the highest-quality ingredients and keeping in touch with consumer concerns.

"While the vast majority of our snack products do not contain eggs, choosing cage-free eggs is the right thing for our company and our customers," Levy added.

In addition, the company said that it is actively reducing the size and thickness of its cartons, initiating more aggressive recycling projects in manufacturing facilities, and optimizing its delivery system for fuel conservation in order to reduce negative effects on the environment.
