Eggland’s Best continues to support the fight to end breast cancer with its ongoing partnership with Susan G. Komen®. This year marks the ninth year that Eggland’s Best has helped fund Komen’s mission to save lives by ensuring that all people receive the care they need and finding breakthroughs that prevent and cure breast cancer.

“We are thrilled and thankful that Eggland’s Best continues to be committed to helping support our fight to end breast cancer,” said Christina Alford, Komen SVP of Development.  “More than 41,000 women and men die each year in the U.S. from breast cancer – and that’s unacceptable.  Our partners, like Eggland’s Best, play a huge role in helping to fund our work to save lives.”

To highlight their commitment and to encourage action from millions of consumers in the fight against breast cancer, the iconic red Eggland’s Best-stamped eggs will instead showcase Susan G. Komen®’s iconic pink Running Ribbon® throughout October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During this time, Eggland’s Best egg cartons will also feature Susan G. Komen® graphics. In 2017-2018, Eggland’s Best will donate $100,000 to Susan G. Komen® regardless of sales.

“While significant progress has been made in recent years to improve breast cancer education, it is still important to share information and support those affected by this awful disease,” said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland’s Best. “We are committed to making an impact with the goal of saving lives, just like we are committed to providing consumers an egg that provides better nutrition, better taste, and better freshness.”

“I’m proud to work with Eggland’s Best and help support such an honorable mission,” said Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist Dawn Jackson Blatner. “A diet that includes nutrient-rich foods like Eggland’s Best eggs is important for people who are trying to eat a balanced diet to promote overall good health.”

Eggland’s Best and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) marked a historic occasion as they commemorated the 30 billionth USDA-certified Eggland’s Best egg during a private event in Washington D.C on Tuesday, September 18, attended by key personnel from the USDA, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and Eggland’s Best. To help put the immensity of this notable milestone into perspective, 30 billion eggs would circle Earth 38 times!

It’s no surprise that EB has reached the 30 billionth milestone. As the country’s #1 egg, Eggland’s Best eggs are produced by approved, licensed farms located throughout the United States, and are delivered fresh to local supermarkets.  Independent testing published in the Journal of Applied Poultry Research has also confirmed that Eggland’s Best eggs stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs.

“At Eggland’s Best, we hold our eggs to the strictest production and safety standards,” said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland’s Best. “Our 30 billionth USDA-approved egg is a testament to our commitment to providing the highest quality egg possible with superior nutrition, taste, and freshness.”

The egg grading requirements for Eggland’s Best eggs are actually more stringent than the USDA’s standards.  Compared to USDA grading of regular eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs require a higher level of quality and fewer cracks.  In fact, Grade A specifications for Eggland’s Best eggs are more stringent than standard Grade AA specifications for regular eggs.

As part of the EB 27-point quality and freshness program, we conduct more than 45,000 tests every year to ensure that the freshness, nutrition and quality standards of EB eggs are not only met, but exceeded.  

“This is such an incredible achievement and I am proud to partner with Eggland’s Best,” said Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist Dawn Jackson Blatner. “Eggland’s Best eggs are delicious and have higher levels of essential vitamins and nutrients when compared to ordinary eggs, which is why they are the only eggs I recommend to my clients and serve my family.”

Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs contain six times more vitamin D, 25% less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E and more than double the vitamin B12.  EB eggs are also an excellent source of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and vitamin B5. Our superior nutritional profile is due to the high-quality feed that contains superior levels of vitamins and minerals compared to ordinary hen feed and has no animal by-products or fat.

Taste of Home, the leading food, cooking and entertaining authority, has recognized Eggland’s Best eggs as the only “Editor’s Choice” selection for eggs in the September/October issue of Taste of Home magazine.

Eggland’s Best was selected as the “Editor’s Choice” egg brand by their editorial team and Test Kitchen experts, who test and cook thousands and thousands of recipes each year. The recognition appears in a special full-page “Power Food” editorial and highlights EB’s superior taste and nutrition. Eggland’s Best was also previously named a winner in the “Best Eggs” category in the Taste of Home “Best Loved Brands” awards this year. 

“Here at Eggland’s Best, we are honored to be the Taste of Home’s Editor’s Choice recipient,” said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland’s Best. “We are committed to providing the only egg that has superior nutrition and the best quality, taste, and freshness.  We are extremely pleased that the panel of experts that selected this award recommends EB eggs to the millions of their readers and their families.”

Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs contain six times more vitamin D, 25% less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E and more than double the vitamin B12.  EB eggs are also an excellent source of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and vitamin B5. EB’s superior nutritional profile 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 have been the recipient of more than 100 awards and honors for the product’s superior taste, nutrition, freshness, and variety.  To view more of our awards, click here
