At the Ajinomoto Group, we are committed to ensuring the welfare of all animals involved throughout our business. Our procurement of eggs is considered within Ajinomoto’s Group Shared Policy on Animal Welfare. We aim to ensure stable and sustainable procurement of eggs while maintaining their quality, safety and security, in cooperation with our suppliers and other stakeholders involved in egg production.

By region, in Europe, we aim to switch all eggs used in the production on our products to cage-free eggs. In France, we have set a goal to procure 100% cage-free eggs by 2025. We recognize that the supply chain for eggs differs around the world, and we will make decisions around the procurement of cage-free eggs based on the local situation in each region and market.
