Happy healthy eggs
At Sainsbury’s we care about the hens laying our eggs. That’s why we only stock eggs from 100% British and cage free hens. All of our eggs also come from RSPCA Assured farms which adhere to welfare standards.
Scrambled, poached, boiled, or beaten, eggs are one of nature’s most adaptable and tasty basic ingredients.
Naturally high in protein, they are also high in vitamin D, as well as being a source of Iodine and selenium.
Happy Hens and the Woodland Trust
Like their wild ancestors hens prefer a natural environment with trees. Our free range eggs come from hens with access to established woodland or where trees have been planted to enrich the range and provide natural cover. This encourages them to range more and live fuller, more active lives exploring and foraging beneath the trees.
For every dozen free range eggs sold, we automatically donate 1p to the Woodland Trust to help fund tree planting projects throughout the UK.
To date Sainsbury’s have supported the Woodland Trust by raising £4.5 million through various projects which has helped plant 2.5 million trees across the UK.
