Quiznos announced plans to phase in the exclusive use of cage-free eggs throughout its supply chain. Under its new plan, Quiznos plans to complete the transition to 100 percent cage-free eggs by 2025, with a goal of reaching that objective by 2022.
“Quiznos has been actively engaged in animal welfare initiatives for nearly a decade, and we’re pleased to announce this latest phase in that effort,” says Elizabeth Sapp, Quiznos senior vice president of communications. “Switching to cage-free eggs is the right thing for our company, customers and, of course, the animals.”
Quiznos move supports the current industry trend of shifting to cage-free egg products, an initiative McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, Costco, and dozens more are also supporting.
Matthew Prescott, HSUS senior food policy director, says, “Quiznos has been a real leader in animal welfare for years. We welcome this newest step in Quiznos quest to improve conditions on our nation’s farms.”
