Supporters of higher welfare eggs named online in UK

The “good egg list” highlights major companies in UK supporting higher welfare eggs

From the UK’s big four supermarkets to high street food chains and leading food manufacturers, the country’s National Farmers Union is shining a light on those companies that have pledged to buy higher welfare eggs.

The NFU and Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs have been contacting leading food companies and retailers to find out exactly which are standing by British eggs. “This list certainly makes for interesting reading and shows how many companies are backing British egg producers and higher welfare standards," said Charles Bourns, NFU poultry board chairman. A secondary list includes companies the two organizations have yet to hear from regarding their stance.

The full list in available on the NFU website.
