Casino Group to stop selling eggs from caged hens in Franprix, Leader Price and in all stores under Casino banner

Paris, France, 2017-Feb-14 — /EPR Retail News/ — For several years, the Casino Group has been committed to improving the living standards of egg laying hens. It was the first major retailer to discontinue sales of eggs from caged hens, removing them from its Monoprix stores first across its own-brand products, then across national brand products.

Franprix, Leader Price and stores under the Casino banner have each since made the commitment to stop selling eggs from caged hens in their stores within the next three years.
This commitment is particularly ambitious as it concerns both own-brand products and national brand products, right from 2020.

Through this commitment, the Casino Group seeks to emphasise the special attention it devotes to the production and farming conditions of the products sold in its stores. The goal to change farming methods will be achieved through a process of transition that requires close collaboration with our partners in the poultry industry.
