EggTrack aims to ensure food businesses can and will stick to their cage-free egg commitments, create transparency in the market, and catalyze business-to-business conversations that will drive a stable and successful transition to a cage-free future.
Compassion in World Farming launched EggTrack six years ago to track food companies’ progress towards their commitments to purchase 100% cage-free eggs, recognizing that while making a commitment is an important first step, real impact for laying hens comes when companies work towards and meet those commitments. By tracking company progress, EggTrack identifies leaders and laggards, encourages and reinforces transparency, and serves as a platform for deeper engagement with Compassion’s Food Business Team, which supports companies with strategic analysis, technical resources, and animal welfare expertise.
Compassion in World Farming has also launched ChickenTrack, with annual US progress reports to debut in 2022. See the 2021 ChickenTrack Report for an overview of the impacts of COVID-19 on the market and bird welfare, a review of recent breed studies, and a framework companies can use for reporting progress against their commitments.
