RSPCA Australia has congratulated Hungry Jack’s for making animal welfare a priority and listening to the concerns of Australian consumers by committing to serving only cage-free eggs in all its stores by the end of 2017.

“This is such an important commitment to improve the welfare of approximately 37,000 hens who will be able to live cage free,” said Hope Bertram, RSPCA Australia Marketing Manager, Humane Food.

“Unfortunately, there are still 11 million hens in cages in Australia, so it’s critical consumers continue to demand cage free and drive the momentum towards serving and manufacturing higher welfare products.

“Hungry Jack’s has clearly listened to its customers and the wider public with its commitment to serve 100% cage-free eggs by the end of next year. The annual consumption of more than 11 million eggs through its outlets every year represents a tremendous boost for cage-free egg producers.

“It’s very satisfying to see Hungry Jack’s join major companies such as Subway, McDonalds, Coles and Woolworths in showing leadership on the important issue of the welfare of Australian hens.

“RSPCA Australia looks forward to working with more food outlets and retail providers in phasing out cage eggs and ending the inhumane practice of confining hens in cages,” said Ms Bertram.
