  • Trapped in Filth


    Subway sources its chicken from industrial farming operations that house hundreds of thousands of birds inside filthy, windowless sheds. Due to this severe overcrowding, these birds are provided slightly more space than a sheet of paper to live on. Often they are unable to walk and lay in ammonia- laden litter causing sores and respiratory problems.

  • Bred to Suffer


    Birds in Subway’s supply chain have been so genetically manipulated that they grow to be seven times as large as they would without such invasive tampering — and in less time. This accelerated growth leaves birds crippled under their own weight and causes a myriad of other problems.

  • Brutally Killed


    While millions of birds die due to genetic and environmental abuses, those who survive suffer the cruelest fate. At the slaughterhouse they are violently shackled upside down, painfully shocked with electricity, and cut open at the throat — often while still conscious and able to feel pain.
