Buehler’s Fresh Foods announced their goal to transition to a 100 percent cage-free egg supply chain by 2025. The egg industry, nationwide, has set this goal considering supply, affordability and customer demand.

Buehler’s Fresh Foods egg supplier, Hillandale Farms, has already begun taking the necessary steps to a cage-free egg supply chain, including:

• the purchase of a turkey farm – easily converted to a cage-free chicken farm

• the addition of one million cage-free chickens to the Hicksville farm

• the addition of cage-free chickens to the Dalton farm

By the end of 2016, Buehler’s will offer customers a “Buehler label” cage-free egg product.

Current specialty or premium eggs sales at Buehler’s account for about one-third of total egg sales, including:

• cage-free

• free range

• organic

• non-GMO

• Omega 3

• Omega 3+Lutein
