Dunkin’ Donuts Pledges to go Crate and Cage-Free

The fast food outlet has announced its commitment to eliminating gestation crates and sourcing only cage-free eggs within the next year.

Dunkin’ Donuts is the latest fast food chain to commit to eliminating the gestation crates in its supply chain. The coffee-and-doughnut stop has also pledged to only source its eggs from cage-free suppliers. While the outlet has yet to set a definite timeline, the company says it will start with requiring its US pork suppliers to present plans that allow an eventual achievement of a crate-free system, and has committed to a five-percent transition of its eggs to cage-free by the end of next year. Jack in the Box, Subway, and Carl’s Jr are a few of the other fast food chains that have committed to remove the confining crates from their supply chains.
