Societal Guided by a moral compass
Society as a whole
Humans have been eating eggs for several thousand years. The egg contains many vitamins, minerals, and amino acids vital for our well-being. Due to their high nutritional value and versatility, eggs play an important role in the diet of the entire family. They're also used as a component in a large number of dishes and food products. As the second largest egg producer in Latvia, we bear the responsibility of bringing affordable, nutritious, and good-quality protein to the people in Latvia and abroad.
What is it like for the chicken on the farm? The welfare of farm animals and responsibility towards nature are among the main concerns for us and people around the world. Our team has carefully analyzed the most advanced technological solutions. We focus on creating an environment where laying hens are able to walk, spread their wings, hover between perches, scratch, enjoy the benefits of natural bedding, and experience peace in the nest at any time.
Here's what we provide for our hens
The maximum stocking density is 9 hens per m2
Use of natural bedding at least per 1/3 of the floor surface
Easily accessible feeders and water points
Adapted perches where laying hens have enough space
