If you are transitioning to cage-free eggs, you might run into these problems
A transition to cage-free eggs will increase costs and reduce profits, according to some of the nation’s top egg groups.
The study, funded by United Egg Producers, and the United Egg Association shows producers might not be able to meet the 2026 deadline when many retailers say they will only buy cage-free eggs.
Their research shows 55 percent of consumers interviewed did not discriminate between cage and cage-free eggs, they were only motivated by price. The study noted producers are also experiencing challenges paying for upgrades to convert their current buildings to cage-free facilities.
