Chick-fil-A, Inc., Atlanta, announced plans to source 100% cage-free eggs over the next 10 years, with the eggs to be served in all restaurants nationwide by year-end 2026.
“Ever since we first opened our doors more than 50 years ago, our customers have trusted us to serve them simple, delicious food made with the highest quality ingredients,” says Rob Dugas, chief procurement officer and vice president of supply chain. “Today, our customers’ lives are busier than ever, and we appreciate that they trust us to provide an on-the-go experience they can feel good about. Our transition to cage-free eggs reinforces our commitment to provide wholesome menu options that continue to meet the needs of our customers.”
Chick-fil-A has already begun collaborating with its egg suppliers nationwide to begin the transition.
“With the majority of the egg industry currently relying on conventional hen houses, the transition to a new, cage-free system that can reliably and safely supply nationwide brands will take time. However, Chick-fil-A takes the transition seriously, and has put in place a process to see the transition through,” Dugas adds.
