DUBLIN, OHIO — The Wendy’s Co. has joined the growing list of fast-food restaurants shifting to 100% cage-free eggs in U.S. and Canadian locations. The Dublin-based company said it plans to complete its transition by 2020. The company also has committed to eliminating the use of gestation stalls from its pork supply chain by 2022 and continues to make good progress against that goal.
“We’re proud of our commitment to move to 100% 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,” said Liliana Esposito, chief communications officer.
The commitment to 100% cage-free egg purchasing affects the more than 400 Wendy’s locations in the United States and Canada that serve breakfast.
