Producing eggs from conventional battery cages is now illegal in the EU. A European Directive banned the production of eggs from hens in barren battery cages from 1 January 2012. Unfortunately, these eggs continue to be produced in two countries on the Continent. This website will help you take steps to avoid illegal eggs.
British Lion egg producers have already upgraded their production and any cage egg produced under the British Lion scheme meets the requirements of the Directive.
If you look for the Lion you can be sure that the eggs and egg products you use are legally compliant.
