Plastic packaging protects and preserves farm-fresh eggs
The Country Hen, producer of organic Omega-3 eggs, is transferring all product packaging from pulp to plastic. The change is being made in an effort to continue to deliver the highest quality eggs to consumers. Plastic packaging provides a better seal, protecting the freshness and quality of each egg, as the shells are permeable. The updated packaging will add another level of ensuring the very best quality eggs are delivered to each retailer and ultimately, household. Additionally, the see-through plastic packaging allows for a clearer vision of the product without having to open the container. The container is visually more appealing with a cleaner package label and logo for retailers.
“Our desire to provide the highest quality eggs for consumers continues to inspire us to do everything possible to ensure freshness. This is evident in not only the quality control measures we take with our eggs, but also the container they deliver in,” shares Brandy Gamoning, marketing manager for The Country Hen. “The upgrade to 100 percent recycled, recyclable plastic packaging is also part of many recent sustainability efforts we have completed across our farm.”
Producing the world’s best organic, Omega-3 eggs that are healthier for humans in a manner that promotes the well-being of the hens, is a top priority at The Country Hen. The farm lives up to the highest humane standards, including offering sunlit cage free barns and outdoor porch access as well as organic, non-GMO feed milled at the farm. The difference truly can be seen in the eggs: whites that don’t run, stand-up yolks of a deeper color and an indescribably delicious taste.
