Two pizza restaurant chains have vowed to source only cage-free eggs at all of their locations in the U.K.
Papa John’s has pledged to eliminate cage-produced eggs from its U.K. supply by the end of 2019. Pizza Hut has also pledged to transition to cage-free eggs in the U.K., and also in Ireland, reported FarmingUK. No timeline was given for Pizza Hut’s transition.
Pizza Hut is a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, which also owns KFC and Taco Bell restaurants. Taco Bell in 2015 pledged it would transition to cage-free eggs at all of its restaurants in the U.S., but Yum! Brands had not made any commitments concerning the other two brands in the U.S.
