Quiznos announced this week that it plans to work with its suppliers to eliminate gestation crates from its supply chain between 2017 and 2022.

The Denver-based chain was applauded by the Humane Society of the U.S.

Quiznos originally introduced some gestation crate-free pork into its restaurants in 2008.

"Quiznos is proud to have been one of the first companies to incorporate gestation crate-free pork into our supply chain, five years ago. Our customers have made it clear that they want better treatment for pigs, and we agree. It should come as no surprise to the pork industry or our customers that Quiznos is doing the right thing by now working to ensure an entirely gestation crate-free pork supply," said Elizabeth Sapp, senior vice president of Communications, Quiznos.

HSUS Food Policy Director Matthew Prescott added that Quiznos' move is "further evidence that confining pigs in gestation crates is simply an unsustainable business practice."
