Free range egg labelling


What does ‘free range’ really mean? Are you being misled?

Are you really getting free range?

Free range eggs cost more but they aren't all equal. Some come from hens with plenty of space to roam. Some may be laid by birds in cramped conditions.

We think free range should mean something. But there’s no official standard for free range eggs in Australia. And no standard means dodgy businesses can cash in on the premium price that free range attracts.
