"We are delighted to receive a Good Egg Award from Compassion in World Farming.
Talkington Bates has realised its commitment to Animal Welfare and for some time now it has been a part of our core values and principles. We are pleased to work alongside Compassion in World Farming to keep up to date with innovation in the field of Food Standards and Animal Welfare and to ensure that our quality standards are up to date and relevant.
We work closely with a chain of nominated suppliers who share similar values, standards and ethos to our own. We demand supply partners who can consistently deliver to our high expectations and who can guarantee the highest standards of quality and service, operating a fully documented food safety and quality management system based on HACCP principles.
This, we believe offers the best assurance to our clients of a quality product which can be sourced locally, supporting local business and environmental sustainability. Our customer feedback suggests that people are happy to know that their eggs are produced ethically especially as some research shows that happy hens produce nutritionally well balanced eggs with less fat and more Omega 3.
For our business, our clients are happy to use free range products which we can promote with the customer premises, further enhancing the Talkington Bates brand and resulting in an uplift in restaurant purchasing."
