The company plans to be 100% cage-free before 2030

Earlier this month, the Cheesecake Factory Incorporated announced that it is working to accelerate its bakery operations' transition to cage-free eggs to the end of 2022. The acceleration would put them three years ahead of schedule, the company said in a press release.

As part of The Cheesecake Factory's broader commitment to sustainable sourcing, in 2020 the company achieved its stated goal of transitioning all eggs used in its US and Canadian restaurant operations to cage-free.

Once the bakery's conversion is complete, 100% of eggs in the company’s baked goods (which account for the majority of its egg usage) worldwide will come from cage-free hens.

Beyond its baked goods, The Cheesecake Factory is also working with its international licensees to transition all eggs used in their restaurant operations to cage-free and is currently discussing a plan and timeline for reaching that goal by or before 2030.

“The welfare of all animals throughout our supply chain is critically important to us,” said Megan Bloomer, Vice President of Sustainability of The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated. "The transition to cage-free eggs was a key component of our larger commitment to animal welfare through the adoption of the Five Freedoms and our Sustainable Sourcing Policy."
