BK: Goals met for cage-free egg purchases

MIAMI Burger King Corp. said it achieved its 2007 goals for U.S. system purchases of crate-free pork and cage-free eggs.

Burger King said last March it planned to purchase 10 percent of its pork from suppliers that do not use sow gestation crates. It also said at the time that it would start buying 2 percent of its eggs from cage-free sources, with the goal of increasing that figure to 5 percent. Burger King said it has met both goals.
