At Restaurant Brands International (RBI), animal welfare is an issue of importance for us and our stakeholders, including our restaurant owners, suppliers, and guests.
RBI’s global commitment is to improve animal welfare in our supply chain. While we are not directly involved in the raising, handling, transportation or processing of animals, we consider animal welfare to apply to all aspects of farm animal care within our supply chain.
As a demonstration of our commitment to animal welfare, RBI is committed to transitioning to 100% cage-free eggs globally—and will accomplish that goal for our U.S., Canadian, and Mexican Tim Hortons and Burger King locations by 2025.
We also continue engaging with our partners at The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International to better understand this issue and others like it.
RBI continues to develop our sustainability framework and broader animal welfare strategy for release later in 2016, and are dedicated to improving our understanding of animal welfare issues by developing the necessary knowledge to manage effective policies and programs.
