Taco Bell Commits to Cage-free Eggs in U.S. Restaurants


IRVINE, Calif. — Taco Bell has announced that 100 per cent of its U.S. restaurants will exclusively serve cage-free eggs by December 31, 2016.

“We are a brand that has our finger on the pulse of not only what appeals to our customers’ tastes but also the issues they care most about, and they tell us they want food that’s simple and easy to understand,” said Brian Niccol, CEO, Taco Bell Corp. “Implementing this change at record pace underscores that we are always listening and responding to our customers, while doing what is right for our business.”

Taco Bell eggs will be verified as “American Humane Certified” based on cage-free egg production standards set by the American Humane Association. Earlier this year, Taco Bell also announced plans to remove artificial flavours and colours, added trans-fats, high fructose corn syrup and unsustainable palm oil from its core menu items.
