Wendy's to go with cage-free eggs by 2020Staff writer ▼ | January 4, 2016
The Wendy's Company will transition to 100 percent cage-free eggs in its U.S. and Canadian locations by 2020.
Animal welfare In more than 400 locations
In 2001, the company established its Animal Welfare Council and adopted a comprehensive animal welfare program covering all meat suppliers. The company has also committed to eliminating the use of gestation stalls from its pork supply chain by 2022 and continues to make good progress against that goal.
Wendy's develops and updates its animal welfare standards for suppliers in consultation with a network of third-party experts including veterinarians, supply chain leaders, and animal welfare advocates.
The commitment to 100 percent cage-free egg purchasing affects the more than 400 Wendy's locations in the U.S. and Canada that serve breakfast. ■
