At Fridays, we are committed to working with our vendors and partners across our entire supply chain to make improvements. This goes beyond poultry and includes our use of all animal-based proteins.
We continue to work closely with our suppliers to identify improved and more humane methods of raising and processing chicken. With our suppliers and the help of others in the market, our goal is to achieve the following by 2024:
- Source only chicken breeds that are approved by Global Animal Partnership (GAP) as having higher welfare outcomes.
We will work to ensure our suppliers are in compliance with this commitment via third-party. TGI Fridays has committed to shell and liquid cage-free eggs in 2018 and look to purchasing 100% cage-free eggs within ingredients-based supply chains by end of year 2024.
Our commitment to responsibility also extends to ingredient integrity and clean label enhancements. We are reviewing all our ingredients and are removing/avoiding ingredients with added MSG or artificial trans fats. We continue to review each ingredient in our recipes with the goal of removing artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners and preservatives. This is in conjunction with our efforts to reduce sodium on our menu.
We are on a sustained journey to provide the best products for our guests by working closely with our suppliers to source safe, sustainable, high-quality ingredients from farms, fields and oceans.
