In addition, to our own high standards for quality control and welfare all of our eggs are produced under the British Egg Industry Council ‘Lion’ Code. The British Lion Code denotes eggs produced to a stringent Code of Practice incorporating the latest research and advice on Salmonella.
We are also members of the RSPCA Freedom Foods scheme setup to ensure high welfare standards through their five freedoms code. Their five freedoms are as follows;
– Freedom from hunger and thirst
– Freedom from sickness and disease
– Freedom from fear and distress
– Freedom from pain and injury
– Freedom to express normal behaviour
We understand the importance of being able to trace were your food comes from. As such, all of our eggs are labelled with a ‘Best Before’ date, Production Method (1=Free Range, 0=Organic), Country of Origin (i.e. UK) and Farm ID. Used in conjunction with our Quality Control procedures we can trace every egg back to the exact flock and date it was laid. Likewise, because we only ever sell free range eggs you can always feel assured that you are getting the genuine article.
We are constantly striving to ensure that we supply the freshest and tastiest free range eggs to our customers. This not only means adhering to highest industry standards, but also implementing our own unique standards of quality control. Our recently built on-farm Packing facilities not only provide a safe clean environment, but also incorporate the very latest automated crack, blood and dirt detections systems. In addition, periodic checks are made throughout the day and eggs from each flock are tested weekly for protein and yolk quality.
Hoads Farm Free Range eggs are predominately available throughout the South-East of England, in Asda, Morrison’s, Sainsburys and Tesco, in addition to numerous independent retail outlets.
