Royal Caribbean Cruises recently announced its commitment to provide guests with cage-free eggs over the coming years. The leading cruise company had introduced cage-free eggs in its supply chain in 2010 and continues to undertake significant efforts to bring sustainably sourced food for guests.
“By moving to 100 percent cage-free eggs we are not only delivering quality food, but acting responsibly when it comes to the welfare of animals in the food system,” said Mike Jones, Vice President, Supply Chain, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.
In their recent press release, Royal Caribbean has also committed to source only gestation crate free pork by 2022. “Royal Caribbean supports the continual movement of the food service industry in this direction, and remains committed to keeping the treatment of animals in consideration when supplying its fleet with food,” added Mike Jones.
Royal Caribbean Cruises currently owns Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, Pullmantur, Azamara Club Cruises and CDF Croisières de France, as well as TUI Cruises through a 50 percent joint venture. Together, these six brands operate a combined total of 44 ships with an additional eleven on order. They operate diverse itineraries around the world that call on approximately 480 destinations on all seven continents.
