In addition to our own farms, we have long-term relationships with over 340 producers, some of whom have more than one farm supplying us; in total we collect eggs from more than 385 locations, from the Highlands of Scotland to Cornwall.
Our producers are mainly family-owned farms, often with other livestock, arable and other diverse farming interests: our audit teams carry out assessments of these farms to ensure that they meet our high standards.
In addition to our own audits, all our producers’ farms are certified and audited by the BEIC Lion Code, while free-range, barn and organic farms are also certified and audited by the RSPCA Freedom Food Scheme. Organic farms are also certified and audited by one of the Organic certification bodies such as the Organic Food Federation or Organic Farmers & Growers.
The result is that each and every one of our producers is among the finest in the country.
