Oritain certifies Margaret’s Eggs are free range

Margaret’s Eggs, Ireland’s largest dedicated free-range egg producer and packer, has signed a new partnership with Oritain, the product and supply chain traceability specialist.

The partnership, the first for any company in Ireland to be Oritain certified, will see Oritain verifying the origin of Margaret’s Happily Free Range Eggs across several specially selected farms.

Margaret’s Eggs is an industry leader in ethical farming, guaranteeing consumers a maximum of 1,000 hens per hectare, compared to the EU standard for free-range farming, 2,500 hens per hectare. Margaret’s Eggs and Oritain started working together last year, developing a programme to protect the integrity of their eggs and high animal welfare standards.
