Subway announces its antibiotic-free policy

Announcing its current antibiotic-free policy, fast-food chain Subway has vowed to completely eliminate antibiotics from its meat over the next 10 years.

Announcing its current antibiotic-free policy, fast-food chain Subway has vowed to completely eliminate antibiotics from its meat over the next 10 years.

The world's largest sandwich chain has committed to transition to only serving chicken raised without antibiotics important to human medicine. The brand confirmed that it is beginning to transition to serving only protein from animals that have never received antibiotics across all of its 27,000+ US restaurants in early 2016.

According to a press release, in March 2016, Subway customers across the US will be able to order meals made with chicken raised without antibiotics. Turkey raised without antibiotics will be introduced in 2016, with a completed transition expected within two-three years, and pork and beef raised without antibiotics will follow within six years after that.

"Today's consumer is ever more mindful of what they are eating, and we've been making changes to address what they are looking for," says Dennis Clabby, Executive Vice President of Subway’s Independent Purchasing Cooperative (IPC). A change like this will take some time, particularly since the supply of beef raised without antibiotics in the US is extremely limited and cattle take significantly longer to raise. But, we are working diligently with our suppliers to make it happen."

"Given the size and scope of the Subway brand, this commitment is the largest of its kind in the restaurant industry. We hope that this commitment will encourage other companies in our industry to follow our lead, and that, together, this will drive suppliers to move faster to make these important changes for consumers," adds Clabby.
