Burger King to Serve Up Cage-Free Food, go the reports on the wires today. The fast-food co. plans to order more of its meat and eggs from producers who “do not keep their animals in cages and crates.”
This looks like great news, but the cynic in me is just counting down the seconds till the words “crate” and “cage” get redefined. Also, the current percentages of BK ingredients from such enlightened producers is 10 percent of its pork and all of 2 percent of their eggs–the latter is set to double by the end of the year. And it’s not like I go to BK to order pork or eggs.
Still, it’s a start.
