Products from The Happy Egg Co. received Kosher certification by the Orthodox Union (OU), the world's largest and most widely recognized kosher certification agency.
Validating the highest standards of kosher certification, as well as high quality food standard assurance, the OU Kosher symbol on Happy Egg packaging verifies its ingredients, production facility and actual production, including all ingredients, derivatives, tools and machinery, have no trace of non-kosher substances.
"It brings us great joy that we can now offer Happy Egg products to the ever-expanding kosher community," said Rabbi Chaim Loike, Rabbinic Coordinator of the OU. "The OU symbol is one of the world's best-known trademarks and has become synonymous with quality, an attribute we know that Happy Egg products will offer to shoppers."
The OU Kosher symbol appears on close to 70 percent of America's kosher certified foods, with the organization certifying over one million products, produced in more than 12,000 plants, located in 104 countries around the world.
"At Happy Egg, it's our belief that every person deserves a better egg," said Dan Arnsperger, CEO of Happy Egg Co. "With over 12 million American consumers choosing Kosher food products for reasons related to food safety, health, taste and dietary restrictions, we are thrilled our new certification can help bring even more consumers into the Happy Egg family."
Happy Egg hens are raised on over eight acres of pasture with access to the outdoors year-round, which is nearly 10 times the amount of space provided by standard free-range farms, the company stated. The Happy Egg Co. values the relationships with its 50+ family of farmers, prioritizing their needs so they can focus on giving Happy Egg hens the care and attention they need to thrive in order to bring U.S. consumers delicious, high-quality eggs that are at the heart of family meals and memories made around the table.
