Royal Caribbean Cruises Commits to 100% Cage-Free Eggs by 2022

Royal Caribbean Cruises has committed to providing passengers with 100% cage-free eggs by 2022, building on an initiative that first introduced cage-free eggs into its supply chain in 2010.

The company purchased more than 40 million whole eggs in 2015.

"By moving to 100% cage-free eggs we are not only delivering quality food, but acting responsibly when it comes to the welfare of animals in the food system," said Mike Jones, Vice President, Supply Chain, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

In recent years the cruise company has undertaken significant efforts to provide sustainably sourced food for guests including sourcing pork from gestation crate free suppliers. As a result the company is also committing to sourcing only gestation crate free pork by 2022.

 "Royal Caribbean supports the continual movement of the food service industry in this direction, and remains committed to keeping the treatment of animals in consideration when supplying its fleet with food," Jones added.

Note: We asked the company how many of the 40 million eggs purchased in 2015 were cage-free, but was told that they do "not have an accurate number on the current usage of cage-free".
