MINNEAPOLIS — International Dairy Queen Corporation (IDQ) announced it is on track to meet its cage-free egg commitment in the U.S. and Canada.
The commitment includes shell and liquid eggs at restaurants that serve breakfast and eggs that are used as an ingredient in a variety of DQ proprietary food and treat products. IDQ also committed that any new egg or ingredient supplier in its system is required to provide cage-free eggs.
“In 2016, we made a commitment to animal welfare when we announced our transition to cage-free eggs in the U.S. and Canada by 2025,” says Steve Min, executive vice-president of Research and Development, IDQ. “As we continue to make progress toward our goal, we reduced the number of proprietary ingredients not yet using cage-free eggs by more than 35 per cent. I am pleased to share that now 100 per cent of proprietary ingredients in Blizzard Treats contain cage-free eggs and we are on track to meet our cage-free egg commitment in 2025 or sooner.”
