MULTI award-winning Cavanagh Free Range Eggs has been listed by leading Irish retailer Dunnes Stores in two outlets – Omagh and Enniskillen.
Five lines of free-range eggs are being supplied to the Dublin-based retailer by Cavanagh, a poultry farm owned by John and Eileen Hall at Newtownbutler, in Fermanagh.
The lines are: Big Breakfast six packs; Large six and 12 packs; Medium six and 12 packs.
Mrs Hall says the farm was approached by Dunnes Stores following requests by shoppers in the two Northern Ireland towns requesting Cavanagh Eggs. “Management feared they were losing out by not having our eggs on their shelves and asked if we would supply them.
“We were delighted to be approached and happy to supply them with a selection of free range eggs straight from our farm,” Mrs Hall explains.
The award-winning poultry business also supplies Spar, Tesco and Asda in Northern Ireland with a range of eggs.
“Business is also going really well at these retailers,” Mrs Hall says. “Sales have increased significantly year on year,” she adds.
The family business is among the most successful egg producers in Northern Ireland and has won Irish Quality Food and Drink and UK Great Taste awards in the past few years.
Cavanagh Free-Range Eggs produces and processes upwards of 23 million eggs a year on its Newtownbutler farm, along with three contract producers within a 20-mile radius, two of whom are family members.
The company has invested extensively in the past few years with the latest grading and packing technology on the farm.
“What sets our eggs apart is the deep yellow yolks and firm whites,” she continues.
“We are a family business which means we have total control of all aspects of production. Our eggs have provenance as well as an amazing taste.”
Cavanagh Free-Range Eggs was established in 2012 and now has a 75,000-strong flock of chickens across four sites.
