At Bidfood, it’s our policy to support the wider industry goal of sourcing only cage-free eggs by 2025, dependent on availability of supply, affordability and customer demand.
This includes branded and own label shell eggs, liquid egg and eggs as ingredients in our own label products.
We are in conversations with egg suppliers, as well as suppliers of products containing egg as an ingredient, to understand timelines for moving to cage- free supply by 2025 in order to achieve this aim.
As of 2019, all of our own brand shell eggs are certified to meet British Lion Assurance Standards, which includes strict measure on traceability, welfare, feed, temperature and hygiene.
The British Lion stamp indicates that the eggs are British, the hen has been vaccinated against salmonella and the farm adheres to strict health and safety requirements.
