The Good Egg Awards 2008: UK winners announced

News Section Icon Published 29/04/2008

Top UK companies named 'Good Eggs' whilst 62 per cent of British hens remain in battery cages.

Cadbury Creme Egg, Hellmann's and The National Trust are among the UK's leading brands to be named 'Good Eggs' on 29 April 2008 at an award ceremony in London hosted by Joanna Lumley.

Award winners this year will effectively release over 10 million hens from cages, double the number released by Good Egg Award winners' commitments last year. The awards celebrate companies ditching the battery cage egg in favour of eggs from free-range or barn kept hens.

Meanwhile, the UK's largest supermarket, Tesco will receive a Rotten Egg Award for failing to make a commitment to rid their shelves of battery cage eggs.

This Rotten Egg represents an estimated 1.3 million birds that could be freed from cages each year if Tesco moved to selling only barn and free-range eggs.
