SUBWAY® RESTAURANTS EXPANDS 2025 CAGE-FREE EGG COMMITMENT

July 22, 2019: Global quick service restaurant brand, Subway, today announced it will transition to cage-free eggs in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan and South Korea, as part of its commitment to ethical sourcing.

This announcement comes in addition to the commitments Subway has already made in North America, which is currently transitioning to cage-free eggs, and Europe, Australia and New Zealand, which have already made the switch to cage free eggs.

“Subway is committed to providing our guests with high-quality, fresh food, while supporting the health and welfare of animals through responsible sourcing,” said Subway Regional Director for Australia, New Zealand & South East Asia Geoff Cockerill.

More than 1000 restaurants within the countries, will make the switch to cage-free eggs by the end of 2025.

As part of this commitment to ethical sourcing, Subway is taking steps that will require egg suppliers to improve the housing conditions for laying hens with cage-free environments.

“Subway will be working with egg suppliers to assist them to pursue animal welfare certifications for their operations, so that guests can have even greater confidence about the welfare of laying hens producing eggs that are served in our restaurants,” he said.

Subway’s announcement represents a part of the broader brand transformation underway, with revitalisation of Subway’s menu, updated restaurants and greater convenience, to appeal to a wider variety of guests.

Mr. Cockerill added that more than 50 restaurants across Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines now featured Subway’s next-generation restaurant design which encourages guests to spend more time in our restaurants.

“We are also evolving our menu, with more exciting changes planned for the coming months to provide greater variety and exciting new tastes for our guests,” he said.

“This commitment is just the latest in ongoing improvements we’ve been making behind the scenes, so our customers can continue to eat high-quality fresh produce in our restaurants.”
