White Castle plans to source 100% cage-free eggs by 2025.

COLUMBUS, OHIO — White Castle became the latest food service chain to make the cage-free commitment. The company said its goal is to transition to sourcing eggs from cage-free hens by 2025, but hopes to beat the deadline.

“Switching to cage-free eggs is something we’ve seriously considered since we began looking at the issue, and today’s announcement represents us being responsive to customer preferences,” said Jamie Richardson, vice-president. “We’re proud to serve our guests food that both comes at a value and aligns with their values.”

White Castle made the decision to switch to cage-free eggs following a months-long review of its supply chain. The company also has been working with The Humane Society of the United States (H.S.U.S.) on this issue.

“We welcome White Castle’s cage-free shift as an important advancement that makes sense for animals and the bottom line alike,” said Matthew Prescott, senior food policy director for the H.S.U.S. 

White Castle has embraced a commitment to “food safety, cleanliness and total transparency.” Part of that initiative includes WhiteCastleClean.com, a web site that features inspection reports and scores from all of its locations.
