Din Tai Fung: Stop Animal Cruelty

Din Tai Fung likes to say that it cares about quality. But when it comes to animal welfare, this iconic Taiwanese restaurant chain is failing its customers and failing its reputation. An untold number of egg-laying hens suffer in cruel cages throughout Din Tai Fung’s global supply chain.

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 go cage-free are being made by some of the largest companies in the world, including Nestle, Unilever, Marriott International, Hilton Worldwide, Sodexo, Compass Group, Lidl, and Aldi. Even low-end fast food companies and US prisons are moving away from this horrible practice. 

Din Tai Fung has recognized that cages are inhumane and outdated. Its restaurant in the United Kingdom already exclusively sources cage-free eggs. Unfortunately, Din Tai Fung refuses to apply these same basic standards in other countries. 

Din Tai Fung claims: “we are honest, fair, and accountable for our actions” and that “quality is the lifeblood of business”. It’s time that Din Tai Fung acknowledge that animals and its guests deserve higher food standards. It’s time that Din Tai Fung demonstrates it cares about its values by making a global cage-free commitment.

Please sign this petition to tell Din Tai Fung that you won’t be visiting any of their restaurants until it stops supporting this egregious animal abuse.
