Nisa commits to entirely ethical eggs from 2022
Nisa’s entire stock of fresh eggs will be free-range from the end of the year, the group announced this week.
The Co-op, which owns Nisa, already has all its own-brand eggs as free-range, so Nisa’s move will bring it in line with the Co-op’s sourcing policy.
Darren Hamilton, Nisa’s wholesale category controller, said: “We are really proud to announce that we have made this commitment which is in line with the growing public desire for more ethically sourced products.
“All major retailers have committed to removing caged eggs from their ranges by 2025 with more than 71% of eggs currently sold in the retail sector already free range.
“By moving early, we are giving Nisa partners the opportunity to meet the demands of customers and capture the increasing desire to buy eggs this way.”
Hamilton added: “The new free-range products will go live from Monday 27th December so the eggs can start landing in stores from 1st January, meaning partners can start the new year able to offer their customers these great value, ethically sourced egg lines.
