Golden Irish has launched a range of organic and free range eggs, pasteurised liquid whole eggs and liquid frozen, as well as boiled, for horeca and retail distribution in the UAE.
The eggs are already provided to Choithrams, Waitrose and Almaya supermarkets and are also the products used for Spinney’s own brand egg range. The Irish firm is now hoping to expand into the food service sector.
Golden Irish, which was entered in The Innovation Hub at the Gulfood Conference, produces only “higher welfare eggs” where hens have outdoor access to green pastures and natural sunlight.
“In 2014, we entered the GCC market with two products – Irish Free Range and Organic eggs. Building on the success of these products, in 2015, we added two new and exciting products to the category – Cornfed and Omega 3 eggs, both of which have also proven popular with local shoppers,” said Brian Eivers, sales director and co-owner of The Nest Box Egg Company, which owns the Golden Irish brand.
All the products are imported from Ireland and are Irish Food Board certified, BRC and Organic Trust certified and The Nest Box Egg Company is a verified member of the accredited sustainability programme, Origin Green.
Golden Irish is in talks with Fresh Express as a distributor.
