We believe it is our responsibility to supply our customers with eggs that have no connection with negative animal welfare issues.

In January 2020 we have reached our target to use 100% cage-free eggs in our products, thanks to our great efforts in sustainability during the last few years. From now on the hens are free to walk around in their hen house. 

For the eggs used in our sauces we aim even higher. Since 2016 we only use free-range eggs, which means the hens have free access to the outdoors.
