Greater Than is passionately working alongside four SA animal protection groups who are encouraging McDonald’s SA to commit to cage-free eggs. Beauty without Cruelty SA, United Front 4 Animals (UFA), Southern African Faith Communities’ Environment Institute (SAFCEI) and Compassion in World Farming launched an online petition on Change.org to bring cruel confinement of egg-laying hens to the public’s attention. Please show your support by signing the Change.org petition here: https://www.change.org/mcdonaldssacruelty

McDONALD’S SA: REACTION TO U.S. AND CANADA ANNOUCEMENT TO FULLY
TRANSITION TO CAGE-FREE EGGS FOR ALL RESTAURANTS OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS
McDonald’s South Africa is committed to providing all our customers with the highest quality food and we source our ingredients from reputable local and international suppliers.
We take note of the moves made by our USA and Canadian counterparts to fully transition to cage-free eggs for all restaurants over the next 10 years. We are currently exploring the viability of expanding McDonald’s cage-free policy to South Africa and we will complete our investigation within a year.
We source our farm fresh eggs directly from our own farms and suppliers, who meet McDonald’s stringent quality and food safety standards. Our customers can enjoy our egg offerings at all of our restaurants in South Africa confident that they meet the highest standards of safety.
