Dunkin' Donuts to Offer Cage-Free Eggs: Five More Chains Make the Pledge

Categories: Food Industry

Made with caged chickens for eggs and gestation crates for pork sausage.

Dunkin' Donuts recently pledged to start using cage-free eggs and eliminate gestation crates for its products.

While the chain will move slowly to transition out the crates and cages, it will cut back by 5 percent by the end of next year.

A final goal is yet to be determined.

In the meantime, here are five other chains that have also taken the pledge to source domestically, and a little more humanely.

McDonald's took the pledge.
In the wake of the chain's massive pink slime fiasco, McDonald's announced in May that they would only buy pork from farmers and sources who don't use gestation crates. Their goal to sever ties with all pork products sourced from gestation crates is to be met by 2022.

In March, Wendy's announced that it will require North American pork suppliers to outline their plans to eliminate gestation crates. Wendy's also recently launched a new commercial where they briefly mention the pledge.
