Au Bon Pain Goes Cage Free in Massachusetts
The Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS) worked with ABP to help the company improve animal welfare in its supply chain. The HSUS applauded the company for adopting a forward-looking policy, which steers away from using eggs from hens confined in battery cages.
“By switching to cage-free eggs in its Massachusetts locations, Au Bon Pain has taken an important step away from cruel battery cages,” says Josh Balk, outreach director of the HSUS’ factory farming campaign. “It’s hard to imagine a more miserable existence for a bird than being crammed in a cage so small, she can’t even spread her wings.”
Many national restaurant chains—including Burger King, Red Robin, Wendy’s, Quiznos, Denny’s, Hardee’s, and Carl's Jr.—have also started using cage-free eggs.
