Tops released the following statement Tuesday:
"As a leading, locally owned regional grocer, Tops Friendly Markets has always embraced and supported a buying local philosophy. While Tops has provided an option for both conventional eggs and cage free-organic eggs for numerous years, we are pleased to announce our plans to source 100 percent of our private label eggs locally from chickens in cage free housing by 2025, based upon available supply. We are proud to support over 300 local companies and 200 local farmers to bring thousands of local products to our customers."
