Egg sourcing commitment

20 May 2020

At Puratos, we are fully committed to responsible sourcing.

Animal welfare is one of our concerns and is part of our overall CSR approach.

By 2025, 100% of the eggs and egg products used by Puratos Group will come from alternative breeding to cages, wherever the group is present.

This commitment is in line with the Group’s vision, with which, as suppliers of bakery, patisserie and chocolate ingredients, we replace, where and whenever possible, animal raw materials, such as dairy products or eggs, with plant-based alternatives.

To support this vision, Puratos has developed various solutions, including:

  • Sunset Glaze, a UHT egg-wash alternative.
    In 2019, we sold a tonnage equivalent to around 250 million eggs, the annual production of 1.000.000 hens.
  • Mimetic, a new generation of fats which provides a real butter sensation, traditionally used in the preparation of croissants, pastries and cakes reduces the use of thousands of tons of butter every year.
  • Ambiante, A UHT non-dairy topping, specially designed for cake decoration replaces year on year thousands of tons of dairy cream.
