Subway restaurant chain will switch to meat raised without antibiotics in the U.S. beginning early next year.

In a press release, Subway announced its new antibiotic-free policy:

  • The transition to chicken raised without antibiotics will be completed by the end of 2016.
  • Turkey raised without antibiotics will be introduced in 2016, with a completed transition expected within two-three years.
  • The pork and beef transition will be completed in 2025.

Dennis Clabby, executive vice president of SUBWAY’s Independent Purchasing Cooperative (IPC) said: “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. A change like this will take some time, particularly since the supply of beef raised without antibiotics in the U.S. is extremely limited and cattle take significantly longer to raise. But, we are working diligently with our suppliers to make it happen.

“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.”

In a statement, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) Lena Brook praised the fast-food chain’s move, “Subway has taken a strong plan that will help the company live up to the healthy image it has long-cultivated.”

The company has also been battered by scandals recently, including its former spokesman Jared Fogle who allegedly paid for sex with a minor.
