As part of its ongoing commitment to more animal welfare, Lidl has already completed its action plan to phase out chick killing instead of by the end of 2022: From now on, the entire range of shell eggs in all more than 3,200 Lidl branches will come from a production process without chick killing. In return, the company accepts all alternatives that are recognized in terms of animal welfare, such as rooster rearing, and advocates methods for early sex determination of eggs. As early as March 2021, Lidl was the first discounter to convert a complete part of the national egg range to rooster rearing with organic eggs in packs of six. By autumn 2021, 80 percent of the free-range and organic eggs were already without killing chicks. By phasing out chick killing, the company is anticipating the law that has banned laying hens from a production facility with chick killing since the beginning of the year.

First processed private label products with eggs without killing chicks

Since the beginning of the year, Lidl has been working on gradually using eggs without killing chicks for processed own-brand products. As a first step, the food retailer is gradually converting spaetzle from its own brand “chef select” to a recipe with eggs without killing the chicks. In the future, customers will recognize these items and the shell eggs by the yellow, heart-shaped “Ohne Kükentöten” logo on the packaging.
