The good eggs and a bad egg of British Egg Week

Posted 5th October 2015 07:00am by

Today sees the official start of British Egg Week (5-11 October) 2015, a campaign launched by British Lion eggs to encourage parents and children alike to eat more eggs.

All this week we will be reminding you of some of the ‘good egg’ companies who use British free range eggs and putting the spotlight on one company whose egg credentials are frankly confusing. We will also be sharing delicious eggy breakfast recipes courtesy of our patrons and supporters.

More and more companies are now using free range eggs (many British laid) including all the main supermarkets who offer own brand lines using free range eggs as well as other household names such as: Ben & Jerry’s and Green & Blacks who make delicious ice cream using only organic ingredients.  We can highly recommend Green & Black’s Vanilla – just five ingredients: cream, sugar, milk, egg and Bourbon vanilla … it just makes eating ice cream even more luscious.  And this new flavour from Ben & Jerry’s has just been spotted by one of the team at Hope Chapel, Greek Style Vanilla Honey Caramel, mmm, needs to be on the next shopping list!

DID YOU KNOW? It is estimated that there are 4.93 billion egg-laying hens in the world. #BritishEggWeek #EggFact
