Sodexo Adds Hard Cooked Peeled Eggs to Cage-Free Sourcing

    

Sodexo, a multinational food service company and an early advocate of cage-free sourcing, has committed to purchasing hard-cooked peeled eggs to the company program. Previously Sodexo announced that 70 percent of shell eggs and liquid would be obtained from cage-free flocks by spring 2018.

 

Jim Pazzanese, Vice President of Supply Management, stated “As a large food service provider, this is the right decision for us.” He added “these changes will have a positive impact on our organization, the environment and ultimately on our business.”

It is noted that Sodexo supplies universities and institutions and caters to a market which is less price-sensitive than distributors dealing with supermarket chains.
