Lion Quality eggs are produced in accordance with a strict Code of Practice that contains a suite of measures to ensure the safest possible eggs. Lion eggs come from hens that have been vaccinated against salmonella. They also carry a best-before date on the egg shell as well as the box for additional food safety and product quality benefits. 

A report from the Advisory Committee on the Microbiological Safety of Food last year recognised the food safety benefits of British Lion eggs and said that: “The very low risk level means that eggs produced under the Lion Code, or produced under demonstrably equivalent comprehensive schemes, can be served raw or lightly cooked to all groups in society, including those that are more vulnerable to infection, in both domestic and commercial settings, including care homes and hospitals.” This has prompted the Food Standards Agency to review its official advice.

The British Egg Information Service (BEIS) provides information and resources to retailers, caterers, food manufacturers, EHOs and the public on eggs and particularly the benefits of using Lion Quality eggs and egg products.

The BEIS has a selection of literature offering advice on egg handling and hygiene, salmonella, methods of egg production and information on why the Lion Quality scheme is beneficial in helping to meet due diligence requirements.
