Good Egg Award

Published

Last week, the international animal welfare organisation Compassion in World Farming (CIWF) presented its Good Egg Award to KLM. The award acknowledges KLM’s use of eggs produced in a more animal-friendly manner. The ceremony took place at the Expo Milano 2015.

KLM received the Good Egg Award because it serves eggs and egg-based products bearing the Beter Leven (“Better Life”) seal of approval, eggs derived from Roundel housing systems, and organically produced eggs on flights in Economy and World Business Class. These include ICA flights originating in Amsterdam and European flights. KLM never uses eggs laid by battery hens on their flights. In 2013, the Dutch Society for the Protection of Animals (Dierenbescherming) gave KLM its “Good Chicken Award” for serving chicken bearing the Beter Leven (“Better Life”) seal of approval.
Qizini, one of KLM’s suppliers was also awarded with the Good Chicken Award and the Good Egg Award.

A quote from the report:
“KLM’s in-flight booklets on the food served in-flight have raised awareness of sustainable and ethical sourcing for a whole range of products, as well as increasing their transparency to customers. KLM were previously awarded the Good Chicken Award in 2013 and have further improved the welfare of animals in their egg supply chain, so they receive a Good Egg Award this year”.

The Good Animal Welfare Awards are presented each year to businesses that have taken steps in recent years to improve the quality of life of farm animals.
