St Ewe Free Range Eggs is celebrating a string of egg-citing award wins for its innovative Super Eggs™.
Super Eggs have been awarded four local and national awards since launching last summer. The most recent was an accolade for Innovation of the Year at the National Egg & Poultry Awards (NEPA) in London.
Nikki Owen, Head of Marketing at St Ewe Free Range Eggs, said, “We are absolutely egg-static that our mighty Super Eggs are being recognised as industry-leading! They really are the next generation in free-range egg nutrition so to be honoured with Innovation of the Year at such a prestigious award is a testament to our hens and of course our team. A big thank you also goes to Humphrey Feeds and Pullets for working with us to help develop the Super Feed for our super girls!”
The free-roaming hens that produce St Ewe’s Super Eggs are fed a scientifically developed ‘Super Feed,’ containing high levels of natural selenium (Se), Vitamin D and DHA Omega-3. Health benefits of human consumption include immune system support, enhanced cardiovascular health, boosted antioxidant levels – and these nutrients have even been shown to slow the onset of Alzheimer’s disease by contributing to brain health and cognitive function in the elderly.
“At St Ewe, the hens come first and our ‘Super Feed’ has been developed to offer health benefits to both hen and human. The hens absorb and deposit these super nutrients into their eggs making them one of the most nutrient-rich, free-range eggs on the market,” Miss Owen added.
“With the nation firmly focused on looking for healthier food options, receiving such incredible national awards dedicated to health, nutrition and innovation is really a huge achievement for our little business.”
As well as Innovation of the Year, St Ewe’s Super Eggs have been awarded; Winner of the Healthy Boost category in the Great British Food awards; Silver for High Protein and Sports Nutrition in the national Nourish awards; and Gold in the Taste of the West awards.
Super Eggs are super in more ways than one, with St Ewe’s CEO Rebecca Tonks explaining, “Owing to a family history of pancreatitis, Super Eggs were initially developed following research on the antioxidant properties linking selenium intake and the protection of the cells. We are extremely proud to support Pancreatic Cancer UK with 5p donated directly to the charity from each carton of Super Eggs sold.”
“It’s a cause that’s very close to our hearts, with all donations helping to provide expert support, fund groundbreaking research and campaign for change, in order to raise awareness and ensure more people survive. So far our Super Eggs have raised over £10,000 in a bid to help transform the future for people affected by this devastating disease.”
