With Easter on the horizon, Fermanagh-based Cavanagh Free Range Eggs is celebrating winning a contract with Asda to stock its new 12 pack of medium locally-farmed free range eggs across all of the retailer’s NI stores.
A previous participant of Asda’s Supplier Development Academy, Asda already sells Cavanagh’s 6 pack of extra-large and 6 pack of large eggs, with the new 12 pack offering a cost-effective option for families and bakers.
The family-run business currently has eight employees and five hen houses with plans to expand in the upcoming months.
“We are delighted that Asda is the first retailer to stock our new 12 pack range,” company director Eileen Hall said.
“At Cavanagh Eggs, we produce 13 million free range eggs each year and our ethos is that contented hens produce the tastiest eggs. Our recent ‘Highly Commended’ at the NIFDA Awards, alongside two Gold Stars in the Great Taste Awards 2016, is certainly proof our strategy is working.
“By meeting consumer demand for ethically produced free range eggs in a convenient pack size, we are not only able to deliver for Asda customers but grow our business too.”
Brian Conway from Asda NI’s Local Sourcing Team added: “It’s great to see Cavanagh Free Range Eggs, a graduate of our Supplier Development Academy, continue to expand its range of top quality, fresh eggs. All of the eggs on-sale across Asda’s 16 Northern Ireland stores are locally sourced, which really appeals to our customers. Cavanagh Eggs continue to be really popular with our shoppers so we’re delighted to bring another option to the shelves.”
Cavanagh Free Range Eggs 12 pack medium is now available at Asda stores across Northern Ireland.
