Einstein Noah Restaurants Ban Gestation Crates

The bagel-centric restaurant group announced to HSUS that it would eliminate the confining crates from its supply chain by 2017.

The Einstein Noah Restaurant Group—made up of Einstein Bros. Bagels, Noah’s New York Bagels, and Manhattan Bagel brands—recently announced its plans to remove gestation crates from its supply chain. In a statement to The Humane Society of the United States, the company asserted, “We are pleased to find that the majority of our suppliers are already working toward eliminating gestation crates from their systems and we are committed to working with our supplier partners to eliminate them from our supply chain by the end of 2017.” Einstein Noah, which has approximately 800 outlets in 39 states, joins Royal Caribbean, Target, and Chili’s Restaurants as part of a growing list of companies eliminating the confining breeding cages for pregnant sows.
