The sandwich chain announced its plans to phase out the confining crates.

Sandwich giant Subway joined the ranks of fast food chains McDonald’s, Burger King, and Wendy’s, announcing its intent to eliminate gestation crates among US pork suppliers. The outlet made a statement via the new “Animal Welfare” section of subway.com, stating, “Our pork suppliers in the US have begun to transition to a more humane process including the elimination of gestation crates and anticipate having this process completed within the next 10 years.” The restaurant chain also expressed its support for humane animal husbandry, and divulged that within the US, it participates in a comprehensive animal-care program and has its meat suppliers audited by Professional Animal Auditor Certification Organization.
