Subway announces end of cage eggs in Asia by 2025 following our letter

Back in July 2019, we let you know that we had joined forces with our friends at the Open Wing Alliance to author a letter to Subway to highlight their ethical obligation to remove cage-produced eggs from their supply chain.

OWA’s approach is a strategic one, targeting major food producers and outlets around the world, urging them to make more compassionate changes to their sources of eggs and chicken meat. Initiated by The Humane League, the Open Wing Alliance brings member organizations together to create a unified front in their campaign to free egg-laying hens from cages.

Subway has now announced announced the commitment to source only cage-free eggs in all Southeast Asian countries where it operates, plus Taiwan and South Korea. It is thought that they made this decision in response to pressure from groups like Asia for Animals Coalition, Open Wing Alliance and South American group Sinergia Animal.
