Lidl to only sell 100% RSPCA assured free range eggs by 2024

Lidl today commits to selling 100% free range eggs by the end of 2024, reinforcing its commitment to the welfare and conditions in which hens are housed. 

This new commitment – the first from a Discounter in Great Britain – builds on the supermarket’s existing pledge to work with suppliers to phase out the sale of eggs from caged hens in stores by 2025. It also means that, by the end of 2024, all of Lidl GB’s fresh shell eggs will be RSPCA Assured. 

Martin Kottbauer, chief trading officer, Lidl GB said: “We know that, in addition to the taste, the welfare and conditions in which hens are housed is important to our customers.” 

As part of its commitment to championing British produce, 100% of Lidl GB’s fresh shell eggs are sourced from British suppliers and are produced under the British Lion Mark.  

As the supermarket transitions to selling only free-range eggs it is working closely with its egg suppliers and has introduced longer-term contracts to help ensure that they have security and certainty needed to invest for the future. 

Kottbauer continued: “Our commitment to selling 100% free range eggs by the end of 2024 builds on our strong credentials as a grocer which sources sustainably and responsibly, offering the highest quality produce at affordable prices. Whilst our overall market share is currently 7.1%, we know that 12% of all fresh shell eggs are bought through Lidl, and we therefore hope that this commitment will help create positive change across the industry.”
