WE'RE SETTING THE CHOOKS FREE
Good news for the Chooks! After several months of thoughtful planning to ensure you all have access to the best products that consider animal welfare, we’re proud to be leading the charge for retailers across Australia by removing all cage chicken eggs from our stores shelves.
We're a family-owned business that believes good food is a combination of great taste and the best production practices, and with eggs, this starts with happy hens who have an opportunity to live in best practice conditions. The ACCC standard of free-range indicates that hens have the freedom to roam in the outdoor paddock throughout the day and enjoy secure refuge in the barn at night.
We've been working closely with our egg suppliers & RSPCA during the transition, who support us on the exciting change.
RSPCA Australia CEO Heather Neil welcomed the news and said it was a clear example of a business showing commitment to its social responsibilities by becoming Cage Free and Proud.
"It's fantastic to see Harris Farm listening to the community and the growing consumer demand for cage-free eggs from hens that are free to stretch their wings, scratch, and lay their eggs in a nest – all the things hens like to do," said Ms Neil.
"It's even better that from July, Harris Farm Markets will stock Farmer Rod’s Free Range eggs, which are farmed in NSW and RSPCA Approved."
Over the last couple of months we have introduced our own Harris Farm Free Range egg with a 1,500 hens per hectare ranging area. We will also continue to stock our barn-laid egg along with an extensive free range offer from trusted suppliers such as Mulloon Creek with their organic & biodynamic eggs, and Bum Nuts, with prices starting from just $2.99 a dozen. To help you in your purchase decision, you will find below an egg buying guide to help you understand each of the eggs in our range.
This move reflects our continued effort to offer the best available products from reputable farmers to you, our customers.
IT'S TIME TO MAKE AUSTRALIA CAGE-FREE AND PROUD
