Jollibee Food Corporation pledges to sourcing 100% cage-free eggs by 2035
The brand has over 6,300 restaurants, cafés and bakeries globally.
Asia restaurant group Jollibee Foods Corporation is pledging to transition to 100% cage-free eggs in the US by 2025 and globally by 2035.
According to the company, they plan to collaborate with suppliers, partners, and industry leaders to achieve this goal.
This goal was commended by Lever Foundation, a global NGO that works with leading food companies in Asia to help them upgrade their protein sourcing for a more humane, safe and sustainable supply chain, with a focus on upgraded animal protein and alternative protein.
“With its new policy goal of shifting to use only cage-free eggs globally, Jollibee Foods Corporation and its numerous restaurant and café brands join a growing list of Asia-based food companies that have set timelines to end the use of cruel caged eggs,” said Robyn del Rosario, Philippines Corporate Engagement Manager at the non-profit Lever Foundation, which worked on the issue with the company and several of its iconic food brands over the past eighteen months.
Jollibee Foods Corporation’s pledge comes on the heels of similar commitments made by close to twenty other prominent Philippines-based food and beverage groups since the start of last year, including 75% of hospitality groups in the country as well as convenience and retail players.
Jollibee Foods Corporation, is one of Asia’s biggest restaurant group and owns or operates eighteen brands and over 6,300 restaurants, cafés and bakeries.
