MILFORD, Conn. — Subway has reiterated its commitment to only serve eggs from cage-free hens across its 30,000 North American locations. The transition to cage-free eggs has already begun in select markets in the U.S. and Canada and will be completed across its 30,000 North American locations by 2025.
“Serving food that reflects our commitment to the humane treatment of animals has long been a priority to our brand,” said Elizabeth Stewart, director of Corporate Social Responsibility for Subway. “We know how important it is for consumers to feel confident that the food they eat is ethically sourced and our customers care deeply about animal welfare.”
This commitment builds on a number of other menu and ingredient improvements, including the decision to remove all artificial colours, flavours and preservatives from North American menu items by 2017. The team continues to monitor layer hen housing research to identify future, best-practice menu and ingredient solutions that meet the highest standards of animal welfare.
