Burger King, Popeyes, & Tim Hortons: Stop Supporting Chicken Abuse!
This petition made change with 270,464 supporters!
Burger King defines corporate responsibility as “looking beyond a strong bottom line to consider the impact of everything [they] do.” But when it comes to animal welfare, Burger King prioritizes its bottom line over the millions of egg-laying hens suffering in its global supply chain.
Burger King and its sister companies, Tim Hortons and Popeyes, refuse to end their support of farms that confine hens in tiny, filthy cages. These cages are so small and packed with birds that the hens can’t do anything that is natural or important to them. Often, their body parts are caught in the caging, which results in fractured or broken bones, deformities, and severe feather loss. Some hens, exhausted or unable to move, are trampled to death by their cage mates.
Hundreds of companies around the world are ditching cages. Global commitments to end cruel cages are being made by some of the largest companies in the world, including Unilever, Nestle, Aldi, InterContinental Hotels, Sodexo, Mondelez, Compass Group, Shake Shack, Famous Brands, Costa Coffee, and Barilla. Even US prisons are moving away from this horrible practice. Burger King, however, has failed to join this movement towards better treatment of animals globally.
Burger King states: “We know our policies and procedures will evolve and change as the landscape in which we do business evolves and changes.” Burger King has fallen behind on animal welfare. The world is now looking to Burger King to meet basic animal welfare standards and to join the growing wave of companies that are abolishing some of the worst factory farm abuses. It’s time for Burger King and its parent company, Restaurant Brands International to make a change. Please sign this petition to encourage Burger King, Tim Hortons, and Popeyes to finally go cage-free globally.
