Egg producer Rembrandt Foods to construct new cage-free farm

One of the nation'south largest egg producers says it plans to construct a new cage-free farm in eastern SD that'll house three million egg-laying hens.

Spirit Lake, Iowa-based Rembrandt Foods supplies egg products to food manufacturers, food service providers, restaurant chains and retail grocers. It announced plans to expand the no of hens housed in cage-free barns last year.

Rembrandt president Dave Rettig says growing consumer demand for cage-free eggs has pushed more than one hundred food companies, including Wal-Mart and McDonalds, to switch to cage-free eggs in the next decade.

Rembrandt Foods will construct the facility in Lake Preston, S Dakota. Construction is expected to start this year and it'll be prepared for hens next year.

Rembrandt already has facilities in Iowa, Missouri, MN and Alabama.
