Snyder's-Lance Begins Using Cage-Free Eggs

CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 8, 2012  /PRNewswire/ -- In its continued work to create a more sustainable supply chain, Snyder's-Lance (Nasdaq-GS: LNCE) has begun switching to cage-free eggs used for its products in which eggs are an ingredient, such as cookies, breakfast treats and other products.

" Snyder's-Lance is committed to doing our part in ensuring a more humane and sustainable world," said Sid Levy, Director of Communications and Community Relations for Snyder's-Lance. "We are committed to using the highest-quality ingredients and keeping in touch with consumer concerns. While the vast majority of our snack products do not contain eggs, choosing cage-free eggs is the right thing for our Company and our customers."

"The Humane Society of the United States applauds the Company for beginning to tackle this important issue," said Kristie Middleton, outreach director, for The HSUS' farm animal protection division. "Americans are increasingly concerned about animal welfare, and Snyder's-Lance's switch to cage-free eggs is welcome news."

The switch to cage-free eggs is one of several actions that Snyder's-Lance has taken in regard to products and practices that reduce negative effects on the environment. The Company is actively reducing the size and thickness of its cartons, initiating more aggressive recycling projects in manufacturing facilities, and optimizing its delivery system for fuel conservation. In June 2011, Snyder's-Lance announced the completion of the largest ground-based solar farm in Pennsylvania. Covering 26 acres and comprised of 15,092 solar panels, the 3.5 MW Solar Farm will provide 30% of the Hanover facility's energy. More recently, the Company announced the construction of a state-of-the-art Research and Development Center in Hanover. The building will carry a LEED Silver Certification, meeting strict requirements of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system for the construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. Additionally, the new center will receive 100% of its electricity from the Company's solar farm located nearby.
