Breaking news: Restaurant Brands International announces global-cage free commitment

  • Published:

In a historic win for layer hens, the fast-food conglomerate that includes Burger King, Popeyes, and Tim Hortons—have released comprehensive global cage-free policies.

The new global policy released by Restaurant Brands International (RBI) commits each brand to sourcing 100% cage-free eggs and egg products for every single one of their locations worldwide. This transition will be complete by the end of 2025 for 92% of RBI's global markets (North America, Western Europe, Latin America, Australia, and New Zealand). The remaining 8% of their markets will be cage-free by 2030. RBI promises to provide annual progress reporting to ensure they meet their deadline and has agreed to translate their commitment into multiple languages.

RBI's pledge follows a six-week campaign spearheaded by the Open Wing Alliance, a global coalition of organisations.

Our Cage-Free Eggs coordinator, Georgina Blumears said that “I couldn’t be prouder of all the support we received from this community. The tide is turning, and soon we will be able to eat at all our favourite fast food spot without worrying that the hens that contributed to your meal lived lives of cruel confinement and suffering. Let’s keep working to make that future a reality”.

YOU, our incredible supporters, were too loud and tireless to ignore and made this happen!
