Eggs

We’ve always looked out for the health of our hens and we were the first supermarket to stock only free-range eggs.

You'll be glad to know that our eggs are all 100% British and sourced from farms that are RSPCA assured. They also carry the famous British Lion Quality Mark, which is only found on eggs produced to the highest standards of food safety. And since 2010, all the eggs used in our own-brand products have also been free range.

As part of the RSPCA Assured scheme, all the farms that supply our eggs are regularly inspected to ensure they maintain the required levels of welfare for their hens. This leaves the birds free to roam and leaves you free to enjoy your scrambled, poached, fried or boiled eggs in the knowledge that they have come from healthy, happy birds.

Meet the producers - Rob & Sian

We meet Rob and Sian, one of the many farmers who provide the Co-op with free-range eggs. Watch to find out how they run their farm sustainably.

Laying hens used to produce our free range fresh eggs are certified to the British Lion Quality Mark, meaning they are produced to high standards of food safety and traceability.

All our fresh eggs are 100% British Free Range and carry the British Lion Quality Mark. Eggs used in our ingredients are from free range or organic hens and all of the laying hens are raised to our strict animal welfare standards.

Hens have constant access to outside areas and are free to move around and forage in vegetation. They have access to food and water at all times and can move freely around the shed where they can interact with their companions. They are also able to stimulate natural behaviour through environmental enrichment in the housing such as perches and straw bales. They have adequate nesting areas and access for laying eggs as well as shelter and shade from outside.
