Campus Services, at the University of Exeter, has been awarded a Good Egg Award by Compassion in World Farming in recognition of its commitment to farm animal welfare.

Awards from Compassion recognise food companies across Europe that are making it their policy to produce and source higher welfare eggs, meat and dairy produce.

The Good Egg Award celebrates companies that use or have committed to use cage-free eggs or egg products. To date more than 30 million laying hens are set to benefit each year from the policies of award winners.

The University of Exeter is one of five Higher Education institutions across the country to receive a Good Egg Award. Currently around 15,000 eggs are used by the Campus Services team on a monthly basis throughout the University’s catering outlets and catered halls of residence.

Phil Rees-Jones, director of commercial operations said: “The Good Egg Award further supports and highlights the excellent progress and work we are doing with regards to our Sustainable Food Policy.”

Tracey Jones, director of food business at Compassion in World Farming added: "It is great to see the University of Exeter taking animal welfare into consideration as part of their sourcing policy. Higher welfare produce isn't just the responsibility of the large corporations, but something that can be achieved at all levels. Well done to the University - keep up the good work!"
