Shake Shack’s Commitment to Cage-Free Eggs

Shake Shack’s mission is to Stand For Something Good®. That means sourcing premium ingredients from like-minded ranchers, famers, and purveyors, and working with animal welfare experts to establish and ensure ethical and humane practices – raising the bar for ourselves and the restaurant industry as a whole. Since introducing Shake Shack breakfast in 2013, we’ve sourced cage-free eggs for our Egg N’ Cheese sandwiches. In 2016, we deepened our commitment to animal welfare by converting all products that contain eggs to use only cage-free eggs in our domestic Shacks. As a company with Shacks all around the world, we’ve also committed to sourcing 100% cage-free eggs for our global supply chain by 2025 – we are currently sourcing 100% cage-free eggs for both the US and UK supply chains.

Due to the business impact of COVID-19, we have purchased less eggs than in years prior, but we remained committed to cage-free eggs in our supply chain. 100% of shell eggs are currently cage-free and 100% of liquid eggs are currently cage free within our US supply chain. Our international locations are nearly a third of the way to our 2025 goal with 32% of liquid and shell eggs sourced from cage-free supply.

As part of our continued commitment to premium ingredients, we use 100% Angus beef with no hormones or antibiotics in our burgers and flat-top dogs, and our chicken. Our crinkle cut fries contain zero artificial ingredients, and our frozen custard uses only real sugar–no high-fructose corn syrup.
