Free range eggs producer
Family-owned egg producer on the Darling Downs, Queensland. Operates both organic and pasture raised egg production systems.
In contrast to consumer expectations and free range eggs standards across the world, the government caved to pressure from a few industrial scale egg producers and major retailers to introduce a free range eggs standard in 2017 allowing producers to pack 10,000 hens into a hectare. The CSIRO, RSPCA, Choice and many others recommend a maximum of 1,500 hens per hectare. This company uses a stocking density of 750 hens per hectare for its free range eggs, well below consumer expectations.
