Martin Pitt, one of the founders of the modern free-range egg industry, has died, reports the Scottish Egg Producer Retailers’ Association.
Pitt started his free-range business 40 years ago and marketed his eggs in and around London through 200 shops and restaurants, including Harrods.
Pitt won a Nuffield scholarship in 1981 to study the production and marketing of non-cage eggs, a project that took him to seven European countries.
He won many awards for his work in the industry and was the founder of the Free Range Egg Association.
