The Open Wing Alliance (OWA), a global coalition of 100 organisations in 72 countries on six continents, recently released a new animal welfare report: Fair and Fowl: Global Travel Edition. The report examines ethical discrepancies within the hospitality sector, exposing companies that, despite pledging to source 100% cage-free eggs in their supply chains in recent years, have not disclosed progress on their commitments. The report highlights the importance of corporate transparency and holding companies accountable for the welfare of animals in their supply chains. 

According to the report, Best Western, Capella Hotel Group, and Millennium and Copthorne Hotels have not provided public updates on their cage-free global pledges.

"Pressure from both the public and investors to end cruel practices in animal agriculture has led to the implementation of cage-free egg policies worldwide," said Hannah Surowinski, Global Corporate Relations Manager, the Open Wing Alliance. "Today's tourists are seeking out more ethical travel experiences, and part of that includes expecting a higher standard of animal welfare this report calls out hospitality companies still refusing to report on their global and regional progress, calling into question their integrity and risking increased scrutiny and a loss of consumer trust due to a lack of accountability."
