Our Broiler Welfare Policy
Smitty’s is committed to continuously improving the well-being of farm animals. We, along with other Canadian restaurant chains, agree to work with suppliers and partners on sourcing our eggs from cage free hens by 2024, or sooner.
Also by 2024 or sooner, we will only source our chicken from farms that have earned Global Animal Partnership (GAP) certification or that are certified by another third party audited animal welfare program that meets GAP’s standards on breed and housing conditions (light, litter, space, and enrichment). In addition, all of our chicken will be processed using CAS, which is widely considered more humane.
