Hilton Worldwide:
Be honest about your use of cages for animals

Hilton Worldwide is being called out for its lack of transparency on its ESG goals. Customers are demanding an update on its progress towards eliminating battery cages for hens and gestation crates for pregnant pigs.


In 2015, Hilton Worldwide announced that it will begin to eliminate the use of cages for hens and gestation crates for pregnant pigs in its global food supply chain by 2017 and 2018, respectively.

“With more than 2,000 restaurants in our global footprint, our goal is to have a considerable impact on sustainable sourcing in our industry as well as drive humane treatment of animals throughout our supply chain,” said Jennifer Silberman, Vice President of Corporate Responsibility for Hilton Worldwide at the time.

After failing to meet both commitments, Hilton reaffirmed its commitment to eliminate cages from its supply chain, and adjusted its deadline to 2025. While Hilton has reported some progress toward transitioning to cage-free eggs, the company has publicly reported no progress towards its group housing goal.

While mother pigs and hens are held in extreme confinement, Hilton has failed to be transparent about its progress toward eliminating cages. It’s time consumers know the truth about Hilton.
