Public appetite for healthy eggs has led to an increasing demand for cage free eggs in the food industry globally.
Moreover, food manufacturers are increasingly collaborating with the animal welfare organisations, and such factors are expected to impact growth of the global cage free eggs market positively.
The global cage free eggs market is expected to register a growth of 4.7% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the projected period, 2017 – 2025.
Increasing awareness regarding animal welfare has revved up demand for cage free eggs in the food industry.
Additionally, growing need for healthy eggs among food manufacturers is further expected to boost growth of the global cage free eggs market.
Consumers are increasingly concerned about the origin of the product, and prefer cage free eggs as they are comparatively better than industrial or commercial egg products.
Such factors are predicted to fuel growth of the global cage free eggs market significantly during the predicted period.
Every major UK supermarket has now made a commitment to end the sale of eggs produced by caged hens by 2025.
The look for alternative production systems will force the egg industry into its biggest change since the introduction of the enriched cage system in 2012; a move which then cost farmers in excess of £400m.
