American Vegetarian Association Again Honors Eggland’s Best Eggs With Certification For Its Superior Products

Eggland’s Best Remains Only Certified Egg for More than a Decade

Cedar Knolls, N.J., January 31, 2017- For the 13th consecutive year, the American Vegetarian Association (AVA) has awarded Eggland’s Best eggs its Global Certification.

The AVA was formed to promote the interests of individuals and organizations involved in the preservation and distribution of vegetarian ideas and products. The AVA’s primary goal is to create a widely recognized certification program to allow vegetarian-minded people to make accurate choices when seeking vegetarian options. 

“At the American Vegetarian Association, we only honor healthy, quality products that meet our strict vegetarian guidelines,” said Len Torine, Executive Director at the American Vegetarian Association. “Eggland’s Best aligns perfectly with what our organization looks for due to their commitment to providing customers with the best quality, freshness, taste and nutrition.”

Eggland’s Best is the first and only egg brand to be certified by the AVA.  The certification of Eggland’s Best eggs from the AVA provides customers with the assurance that when they purchase Eggland’s Best eggs, they are purchasing the best vegetarian product.

“We are honored to once again be certified by the American Vegetarian Association,” said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland’s Best. “We have strived to provide a superior egg with better taste, better nutrition and better freshness for 25 years, and being recognized as the only egg on the list by this prestigious association year after year confirms we are meeting the highest of standards.”

Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs contain five times more vitamin D, 25 percent less saturated fat, more than double the omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E, and three times more vitamin B12.  Eggland’s Best’s superior nutrition is due to its proprietary all-vegetarian hen feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil and a wholesome supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E.  In addition, independent testing has revealed that Eggland’s Best eggs have stronger shells than ordinary eggs, which leads to less breakage and helps them stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs.

Eggland’s Best Eggs is celebrating 25 years of providing a better egg with superior quality, freshness, nutrition and taste. Visit for more 25th anniversary inspired recipes and more information.
