THE SCIENCE BEHIND OUR EGGS:
While you're boiling your egg here's some more technical stuff to pass the time. The apparent simplicity of eggs on a plate (or in a bottle) belies layers of technology: agricultural, sorting and packaging. In The Free Range Chicken Co's case, after the hen has done her part, it involves collection, size grading, quality checking and individual coding before being packed.
WHAT MAKES OUR SHELL EGGS SPECIAL:
- We're one of the few significant South African egg farmers to only produce Free Range eggs.
We do not produce any cage-derived/ "battery" eggs.
- Maintaining appropriate environmental conditions throughout the production process ensures longer lasting, fresher eggs.
- Each egg is date stamped and source-coded, ensuring you always know which eggs to use first.
