Food Network’s Ace of Cakes star Chef Duff Goldman is making a big move by switching all the eggs that his bakery uses to cage-free.
“Charm City Cakes is pleased to have switched to only using cage-free eggs, which is a great way to improve animal welfare and meet our customers’ expectations for being socially responsible,” stated Chef Duff, owner of the Baltimore-based, nationally-recognized company.
Chef Duff isn’t the only Food Network star going sans cage. Chef Guy Fieri switched all eggs served at his two California restaurants to cage-free in June 2010.
While cage-free certainly isn’t a perfect solution, hens in these facilities generally receive two or three times more space per bird than their caged counterpart. And for that, Chef Duff is being praised.
“The Humane Society of the United States is delighted that Chef Duff and Charm City Cakes have joined the national movement away from eggs from caged hens, which improves animal welfare, sustainability, and food safety,” said Josh Balk, outreach director of The HSUS’ factory farming campaign.
Our fingers are crossed that other Food Network stars join Chef Duff on his cage-free quest!
