Protein Exposure

Although all companies provide a high-level disclosure of their menu items or purchased animal proteins, this information is typically unquantified, dispersed across various reports, and lacks granularity. Only one company provides a best practice disclosure reporting a percentage breakdown of its primary food items, which it updates annually. 


Ambition Level of Antibiotics Policies and Proteins Covered

Positively, 11 of the 12 companies have a policy that, to some extent, restricts the use of medically important antibiotics (MIA) for at least one animal protein. However, only 24% of the 12 companies’ material proteins are covered by a publicly available antibiotic policy.

Restaurant Footprint and Geographies Covered by an Antibiotic Policy

There are significant gaps in the geographies that the companies’ policies cover. Despite all 12 companies having global operations, existing policies primarily apply exclusively to the US and/or Canada. Encouragingly, three companies have a policy estimated to cover at least 80% of their global supply chain or restaurant footprint. 


Evidence of Policy Implementation

There is an important distinction to be made between the proportion of global suppliers a policy applies to and the proportion of suppliers actually in compliance with the policy. While 8 of the 10 companies with a broiler policy clearly state they have fully implemented these policies, no company provides evidence that its policies for beef and pork are being complied with. 


Time-bound Targets

Only four companies have set time-bound targets for reducing antibiotic use or implementing antibiotic policies.
