TORIDOLL Holdings Corporation, one of the world's largest restaurant companies based in Japan, has released a groundbreaking global animal welfare policy pledging to source 100% cage-free eggs and egg products for its restaurant locations worldwide, making it the largest cage-free commitment from a Japanese-multinational corporation to date. This critical commitment follows collaboration between Toridoll and the Open Wing Alliance, a global coalition of more than 90 major animal protection organisations across 63 countries.

With over 1,700 restaurants in 27 countries, TORIDOLL'S new policy will benefit countless egg-laying hens in the global supply chains. With this commitment in place, TORIDOLL is set to source approximately 1.2 million cage-free eggs by year-end 2022 and 11.68 million cage-free eggs by year-end 2023 in Japan alone.

"Due to the magnitude of Toridoll's influence, this commitment to source cage-free eggs will dramatically change the face of animal agriculture on a global scale," said Hannah Surowinski, global Corporate Relations Coordinator for The Humane League. "This proves beyond doubt that the world is rapidly moving away from cruel cages."
