Americans Encouraged to Set Their Holiday Tables with Humane Foods
As many Americans gather to share good food and company, Eggland’s Best has joined forces with American Humane Association to urge consumers to choose humane food products this holiday season that are nutritionally superior and affordable.
Eggland’s Best was recently featured at American Humane Association’s Congressional Briefing on “The Humane Table,” which celebrated American farmers and ranchers who provide safe, abundant, affordable and humanely raised foods under ethical, commonsense and scientifically demonstrated standards.
“As the only food brand asked to present, Eggland’s Best illustrated how food companies can provide healthy, humane, safe and affordable products to the American people,” said Dr. Robin Ganzert, President and CEO of American Humane Association. “Their pledge to support humane animal care serves as encouragement for other food companies to follow in their footsteps.”
Eggland’s Best implements a strict quality assurance program on all the farms they work with across the country. They also feed their hens an all-vegetarian diet consisting of healthy grains, sea kelp, canola oil and vitamins. This proprietary hen feed results in an egg that contains 25 percent less saturated fat, four times the vitamin D, 10 times the vitamin E and twice the amount of omega-3 fatty acids when compared to ordinary eggs. And EB large eggs contain only 60 calories and stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs.
“We hold our egg producers to the highest standards and are proud to pledge our commitment to humane farming practices,” said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland’s Best.
“American Humane Association would like to thank Eggland’s Best for their participation at the ‘Humane Table’ congressional briefing and for Charlie Lanktree’s contribution to the conference,” said Dr. Ganzert. “Not only are we thrilled to know that Eggland’s Best is truly dedicated to the humane care of animals, we are grateful for their donation to the D.C. community this holiday season.”
With the season of giving upon us, Eggland’s Best contributed food donations to the D.C. Central Kitchen, alongside other major food companies, to help set a humane table for families in need this Thanksgiving. The donation demonstrated American Humane Association members’ commitment to both animals and people.
“Eggland’s Best focuses on the safe, healthy and affordable products and we are excited to create a strong partnership with Eggland’s Best for many years to come,” said Dr. Ganzert.
