Transatlantic Contrast


Although here in Britain, almost all McDonald’s restaurants use free range eggs, with a plan to be entirely free range by 2010, its American counter part has been dragging its heels on the issue.

The Chicago based firm, which uses 3bn eggs a year is exploring alternatives to battery cage eggs and is experimenting with free range varieties.

Welcomed by animal rights groups, the move is manifest to the fact that in the UK foodservice does appear to be one step ahead and more importantly that animal welfare is prominent in the public’s mind and that operators will bow to pressure.
