Sustainability

Our brown eggs are also green

We recognise that our business doesn’t exist without having an environmental impact.

Our plastic usage has been either removed completely or significantly reduced and we’ve planted native trees (well over 10,000 to date) and hedgerows in the free range hen habitats – encouraging birds and wildlife to thrive. We generate and use clean solar energy (enough to power approximately 80 semi-detached houses, and are always looking for ways to make more); have lighting that switches itself off when not in use; and run a fleet of modern low emissions HGV vehicles.
 
 

No half measures when Bird Bros go to work on an egg

There’s always plenty more we can do to improve efficiency – and reduce our environmental impact.

For instance, installing robotics for the heavy lifting and many mundane tasks involved with packing millions of eggs a week. Our low carbon packing centre houses a fully automatic egg sorting grader; a very clever machine which is capable of weighing, sorting and packing up to an incredible 10 million eggs a week. This, along with our packing facilities, give us complete traceability from our laying farms right to your kitchen table.

Through increased investment in advanced machinery, robotics and IT, we aim to maintain our place at the forefront of modern egg farming.
