Egg Track 2020 report

3 January, 2021

The global EggTrack report tracks the progress made by companies towards achieving their goals of abandoning cages for laying hens by 2025 (2026 for some companies in the US). The report was designed to celebrate companies' public commitments and incentivize transparency by encouraging them to communicate gradual progress towards achieving their goals, while enabling conversations between companies to ensure successful conversion to a cage-free future.
The 2020 edition for the first time does not limit itself to analyzing the European and North American markets but offers a vision of the commitments to abandon the cages globally. Of the 210 companies included this year, 80 operate globally, 57 in North America and 73 in Europe.
The 2020 report highlights how the demand for non-caged eggs is increasing globally and is no longer limited to European and North American markets. At the same time, many major multinational companies have made commitments to move away from cages only in certain regions and have yet to extend the decision to all their global supply chains.
Despite the Covid-19 pandemic , food producers and companies have continued to make progress to stop using eggs from cage-raised laying hens. 
This year EggTrack analyzed communications from 210 companies in Europe, North America and the rest of the world. Globally, out of 210 of the companies analyzed, 134 (equal to 63%) made progress to achieve the objectives. In addition, the demand for eggs from hens not raised in cages is growing significantly: from 2016 to today the number of companies with a global commitment has risen from 5 to over 37.
