Eggology Becomes First Egg Products Brand “Certified Humane” By Animal Welfare Auditor, Humane Farm Animal Care

CANOGA PARK, CA. – Eggology, the leader in the all-natural egg whites industry, has become the only liquid egg brand to be “Certified Humane” by Virginia-based animal welfare auditing organization, Humane Farm Animal Care. It was announced today by company founder Brad Halpern.

The first company to offer 100% organic and cage-free egg whites, Eggology has maintained a close association with The Humane Society since being founded in the mid-90’s.

Receiving the prestigious “Certified Humane” designation affirms that Eggology meets the Humane Farm Animal Care’s stringent Animal Care Standard. These include providing animals a nutritious diet without antibiotics or hormones, as well as raising them with shelters, resting areas, sufficient space and the ability to engage in natural behaviors (please find below additional information about the non-cruelty standards Eggology maintains).

“Certified Humane” hens have over 3 times the space that hens have in battery cage factory farms. The Certified Humane logo shown above right will be featured immediately on the website and will begin appearing on the company’s line of products over the weeks ahead.

Eggology has also become a staunch supporter of Californians for Humane Farms’ efforts to pass a precedent-setting California ballot in November eliminating chicken cages in the state.

Added Eggology founder Brad Halpern, “We are truly honored to receive this prestigious certification since the welfare of chickens and all animals has always been of tremendous importance to me personally and to Eggology corporately. I look forward to working closely with the great people at Californians for Humane Farms on this important November ballot and to doing everything humanly – and humanely – possible to eliminate the caging of chickens in California.”
