Burger King, Tim Hortons & Popeyes: Go Cage-Free!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 300,000!


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 prioritises its bottom line over the millions of hens used for eggs who are 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 overcrowded 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 for hens 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. Burger King, however, has failed to commit to reducing the suffering of the hens used for eggs in its supply chain.

Burger King states: “We know our policies and procedures will evolve and change as the landscape in which we do business evolves and changes”, yet it has fallen behind on animal welfare. The world is now looking to Burger King to join the growing wave of companies that are abolishing some of the worst abuses that take place on factory farms. 

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.
