The happy egg co.
In 2010, I was proud to be asked to become brand ambassador for the happy egg co.
The happy egg co. is the UK’s number one brand of free range eggs, and believe that hen welfare is key.
The happy egg co. are firmly of the belief that happy hens lay wonderfully tasty eggs, which is why they want to be experts in hen husbandry and ahead of the game to make sure the girls are as happy as can be. They’ve even won a Good Egg award from Compassion in World Farming in recognition of all their hard work.
They believe that hens enjoy being busy and that’s why they not only provide wide open pastures for the hens to roam and forage, but also equip all of their farms with an assortment of activities to enhance the hens’ natural environment. This includes play kits for perching, sandpits, trees and brashings. Only specially selected British free range farms are chosen to become happy egg farms, all of which are approved by both the British Lion Standard and RSPCA Freedom Food.
