Carnival Corp. announced this week that it will begin using only cage-free eggs on all of its ships.
The transition, which should be final by 2025, is the result of a partnership between the cruise ship operator and the Humane Society of the United States, Carnival said in a news release.
“Carnival Corp. and our brands recognize animal welfare is an important issue for our guests, and addressing it is part of our ongoing commitment to how we operate,” Roger Frizzell, Carnival Corp. chief communications officer, said in the news release. “We have been working with our suppliers in this area, and look forward to continuing our efforts as we work towards our goal of 100 percent cage-free eggs.”
Carnival joins a wealth of other corporations moving toward using only cage-free eggs.
In 2012, Burger King became the first major fast-food chain to announce it would make the move to cage-free eggs and pork, according to a USA Today report on the announcement.
McDonald’s announced in September its plans to go cage-free in its North American restaurants, the Wall Street Journal said.
And in November, Taco Bell announced it will use cage-free eggs at all of its locations in the United States by 2017, CNN Money reports.
