Chippindale Foods, a leading supplier of free range eggs, has become the latest packer to gain Lion accreditation.
Eleven of the leading egg companies are now members, meaning British Lion egg processors now account for around 90% of all egg processed in the UK.
Established in 1930 as a mixed family farm, Chippindale Foods now provides British Lion eggs in liquid and boiled form, as well as Lion shell eggs, to the food manufacturing and foodservice industry.
Claire Anderson, General Manager of Chippindale Foods said: “We are extremely excited to gain Lion accreditation because it means we are offering our customers egg products that meet the highest food safety standards, as well as being able to meet the growing demand for Lion egg products. Our company ethos is about providing the highest quality British free range and organic egg products, so it was an easy decision for us to sign up to the British Lion processing standards.”
Andrew Joret, Chairman of the British Egg Industry Council, said: “We’re so pleased to welcome Chippindale Foods as our newest Lion Egg Processor member. This is great news for users of egg products, whether retailers, food manufacturers or foodservice, who want to be able to source eggs that have been processed to world-leading standards of food safety.”
