InterContinental Hotels Group to Source 100% Cage-Free Eggs

InterContinental Hotels Group has committed to transition its hotels in the United States, Canada and Europe to source 100% cage-free eggs by 2022, and globally by 2025.

IHGs commitment comes after The Humane League, an international farmed animal protection nonprofit organisation, approached IHG with a request for the company to deliver a global cage-free egg policy.

 The new policy will affect all eggs used across its global estate, which includes hotels under brands such as InterContinental, HuaLuxe, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, Even Hotels, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites.

IHG has nearly 5,100 hotels in almost 100 countries. 

IHGs long-term commitment to eliminating cages from their global egg supply chain will have a significant impact on reducing animal suffering worldwide, said Aaron Ross, The Humane Leagues Director of Campaigns. The Humane League is proud to have worked with IHG on its pledge, which we believe provides further evidence that cage-free eggs will ultimately become standard for all corporations globally.
