7-Eleven plans to source only cage-free eggs by 2025, based on available supply for all stores in the United States and Canada.
IRVING, TEXAS — 7-Eleven is joining the cage-free egg movement. The company said it will work with its suppliers to source only cage-free eggs by 2025, based on available supply for all stores in the United States and Canada.

“7-Eleven cares about the treatment of animals, and switching to cage-free eggs demonstrates our concern,” said Jesus Delgado-Jenkins, executive vice-president and chief merchandising officer for 7-Eleven. “We believe that it is becoming important to our customers for us to serve more humanely-sourced eggs.”

The convenience store joins the list of retailers making the switch, including most recently Wal-Mart and Aldi.
