cage-free_chickenUS fast food chain Wendy’s has become the latest company to announce that it will transition to 100% cage-free eggs its 400 U.S. and Canadian locations by 2020.

The announcement represents the next step in Wendy’s overarching animal welfare program, the company said, noting that, since the late 1990s, it has worked with animal welfare experts to audit its suppliers’ animal handling practices. In 2001, the company established its Animal Welfare Council and adopted a comprehensive animal welfare program covering all meat suppliers. Wendy’s has also committed to eliminating the use of gestation stalls from its pork supply chain by 2022 and says it continues to make good progress against that goal.

“Animal welfare is a core part of our company’s role as a responsible corporate citizen,” said Liliana Esposito, Wendy’s Chief Communications Officer. “We’re proud of our commitment to move to 100 percent cage-free eggs for our breakfast items and will continue to incorporate evolving best practices in the areas of animal handling and welfare into our supply chain requirements.”

“We appreciate Wendy’s leadership over the years in creating a more humane supply chain,” said Josh Balk, Humane Society of the United States Senior Food Policy Director. “The company’s cage-free eggs announcement further demonstrates its commitment to ensure farm animals have better lives.”

Wendy’s is an American international fast food restaurant chain founded by Dave Thomasin 1969.  Wendy’s was the world’s third largest hamburger fast food chain with approximately 6,487 locations.
