Care for our animals is an important part of the Southern tradition that Jack’s exemplifies every day. We’re proud to be part of a growing industry committed to humanely treating the animals we depend on. Like our customers, we care about animal welfare. We also recognize that the quality and safety of our food depend on healthy animals. We are working with our egg suppliers to ensure a smooth transition as we commit to use 100 percent cage-free eggs by 2025 or sooner.
We’re also continuing to collaborate with animal welfare organizations to ensure our sourcing standards consider the well-being of animals. Currently, Jack’s is working to developing meaningful animal welfare standards for the broiler chickens in our supply chain.
By 2024, we will source only chicken certified by Global Animal Partnership (GAP) and require all chickens to be processed in a manner that avoids pre-stun handling and instead utilizes a multi-step controlled atmosphere processing system that induces an irreversible stun.
