Au Bon Pain Plans to Eliminate Gestation Crates

A petition started on change.org gets 20,000 signatures and persuades Au Bon Pain to do away with gestation crates by 2017.

Au Bon Pain joins the growing list of food establishments doing away with gestation crates in its farming practices. The café chain recently announced that all the crates will be eliminated from its supply chain by 2017. The decision came after 20,000 people signed a petition on change.org, started by Joanna Breen, a veterinary technician and member of The Humane League. “Animal welfare and humane treatment have been important values to Au Bon Pain and our customers,” says Au Bon Pain CEO Sue Morelli. “Our announcements today reflect those values and continue our commitment.”
