A charity committed to the use of free-range eggs in foods is encouraging people to use the product as part of an awareness day.
The British Hen Welfare Trust has nominated May 4 as Free Range Friday and wants people to use them in any egg product from quiche and pasta to biscuits, cakes and ice cream.
Jane Howorth, founder of the trust, said: "Our aim with Free Range Friday is to spread the word so that people actively choose free-range eggs when doing their shopping. As a nation, we care very much about welfare, and how the food we eat is produced; many people choose free-range shell eggs, but how many people think to check the labels of processed food like ice-cream, quiche, ready meals and cakes? It is consumers who will ultimately influence welfare by the choices they make in their shopping basket."
The charity wants people to organise get-togethers which use free-range eggs. To receive a Free Range Friday fundraising pack, with posters, leaflets, balloons, stickers, recipes, tips and ideas, email email@example.com.
