Jack in the Box to Eliminate Gestation Crates

The fast food retailer, which also operates Qdoba Mexican Grill, is the latest to convert to a crate-free supply chain.

Jack in the Box Inc. is the latest fast food retailer pledging to eliminate gestation crates—cages which make it virtually impossible for pigs to move or turn around—from its supply chain by the end of 2022. The company operates and franchises more than 2,200 Jack in the Box and 576 Qdoba Mexican Grill locations nationwide. “We have evaluated scientific literature … and have consulted with our suppliers and animal-welfare experts on the issue,” states the company’s updated Animal-Welfare Report. The chain joins Wienerschnitzel hot dog chain and Harris Teeter supermarkets in recent crate-free commitments.
