NFU urges consumers to buy British eggs

30-05-2012 | |

The NFU and BFREPA have produced a leaflet urging consumers to buy British eggs. The leaflet is aimed as something egg producers can give out to their consumers which highlights the benefits of buying British.

The leaflet includes an analysis of the egg stamp, rules and regulations on egg labelling, explanations of the different egg production systems and a description of some of the voluntary assurance schemes to look out for.

The leaflet also highlights how UK farmers have invested heavily in higher wealthy systems and how under the National Control Programme (NCP) all UK farms over 350 birds are salmonella tested.

The leaflet is available for NFU members to download online; or to find out more please contact
