TORONTO—The parent company of Tim Hortons and Burger King is committing to serving cage-free eggs at all Canadian, American and Mexican locations by 2025.

Restaurant Brands International joins a growing list of restaurants that have promised to dish up eggs sourced only from hens that have not been confined to cages.

Denny’s has promised its U.S. restaurants would serve only cage-free eggs by 2026, McDonald’s committed to doing the same at its Canadian and American locations by 2025, and Starbucks plans to meet that goal by 2020.

The Canadian wing of Humane Society International applauded the announcement from Restaurant Brands International, saying it is working with dozens of companies to follow suit.
