Duck egg producer gets prestigious P&O contract

UK duck egg producer, Watercress Lane, is to become the new egg supplier for P&O's fleet of cruise liners.

The contract put together by fine-food wholesaler Kentas of London will involve Watercress Lane supplying 20 dozen of its duck eggs to each P&O ship, including the Arcadia and the Artemis.

"Duck eggs were already on the menu for passengers on P&O's Cruises, but the original supplier got into difficulties and was unable to guarantee supply," said Kentas of London managing director, Joe McGinty. "We were recommended Watercress Lane because they have the capability to provide duck eggs of a consistent quality and freshness throughout the year."

Watercress Lane, based in Norfolk, UK produces over seven-and-a-half million duck eggs a year under its Blue Duck brand said the deal with P&O reflected a growing interest in duck eggs as an alternative to the everyday hen eggs.
