Food certification: Meat & Dairy
As promised I'm back with part two of explaining food certification symbols and today the spotlight is on animal products. Meat, fish, dairy and eggs will all be covered below and I hope y'all find it helpful! As before click on the pictures to take you to relevant websites for more information.
Ever looked at your egg and wondered what all the writing on the shell is? Well Grade A hen's eggs have to be stamped with a number indicating whether they have been produced in an organic, free-range, barn or cage system. You can also find a producer code and if they are British Lion eggs they are also required to include a best before date. The egg boxes must clearly state: 'eggs from caged hens', 'barn eggs' or 'free range'.
That's all folks, but if you think I'm missing any please do comment and I will add.
Peas, love & cider.
