Consumers Prefer Cage-Housed Eggs

According to a survey conducted by the Information Resources Inc. (IRI) consumers prefer caged-housed eggs 40:1 over cage-free eggs. The information comes from data collected at grocery store’s registered across the United States.
In 2009 the survey found that 92 percent of egg sales came from caged operations, 2 percent from cage free, 1 percent from free range and 5 percent from other operations. The numbers may be unsettling as consumers have growing interest in organic food and knowing where their food comes from.
However, one of the biggest factors in this study is the cost. It’s no secret during the current recession people pinch every penny, and free free eggs run almost twice as much as caged-housed eggs. As of April 30 a dozen cage-housed eggs cost $1.99, cage-free $2.99 and free range $4.38. According to the data 44 percent of American prefer cage free, despite what numbers show.
Another discovery by the IRI is that Americans pay a third less than Europeans for eggs.
