Who is Tabbassum Mumtaz?

Will Tabbassum Mumtaz forget Au Bon Pain’s resolution this year?

Tabbassum Mumtaz is President and Chief Executive Officer of Ampex Brands, a franchisee of restaurants that are reporting cage-free egg progress globally.

Ampex Brands also owns Au Bon Pain, a restaurant that is not reporting cage-free progress globally.

Au Bon Pain has one year left to fulfill its global cage-free egg commitment. As the leader of Ampex Brands, Mumtaz has the power and ethical responsibility to end the countless abuses inflicted on animals. So why won’t he do it?

In 2013, Au Bon Pain pledged to go 100% cage-free in the US by 2017. Its self-imposed deadline passed, and there was no public indication this promise was honored. Au Bon Pain then pledged to go 100% cage-free globally.

Today, Au Bon Pain has no evidence of any global cage-free progress on its website. Meanwhile, major competitors like Starbucks, Panera, and many more are reporting global progress or fulfillment on their 100% cage-free egg policies.

Caged egg-laying hens spend their lives crammed together in barren wire cages. They cannot dust-bathe or express most of their other natural behaviors. Often, they suffer from broken bones and mental anguish. Each hen is unable to even spread her own wings, and has only as much space as the size of a sheet of paper within which to live her entire, miserable life.

Chickens are social, intelligent animals who should not be forced to live in conditions so inhospitable that many countries and states have made them illegal. Companies like Au Bon Pain should not go back on their commitments, especially when they affect the lives of so many animals.

Will Tabbassum Mumtaz choose to do the right thing and encourage his fellow leadership members to commit to ending this blatant animal cruelty, or will he continue to ignore the global public promise Au Bon Pain made?
