Is the Whataburger near me hiding a secret about its breakfast menu?
For years, consumers have been demanding better animal welfare standards from food providers. More than 400 companies, including Texas-headquartered Whataburger, have responded by committing to eliminate caged eggs from their supply chains.
While competitors have been transparent with their customers about their progress (McDonald's, Burger King, White Castle, Jack in the Box) and fulfilled their cage-free policies (Shake Shack, Arby's, Taco Bell), Whataburger took a step back. Whataburger has no mention of its 2011 cage-free promise on its website, and has never publicly reported on any efforts to honor its goal.
But it's the job of profitable, successful companies like Whataburger to prioritize ESG values, consequently addressing this growing consumer need for corporate responsibility and transparency. Especially when animals are being abused in supply chain cages.
Because customer loyalty will only go so far when restaurants like Whataburger go back on their word, and fail to publicly deliver on the commitment they made to their diners.
Join the movement for fighting corporate greed by asking Whataburger to publish a 100% cage-free policy to its site and publicly report on the promise it made to end animal cruelty now!
