Growth and wellbeing
Our hens are the centre point of our company. From the age of 17
weeks they are the ones that lay the eggs which our consumers can
enjoy. Proper care and nutrition of the hens is essential.
As a supplier of eggs - a natural product - Kwetters is focussed on sustainability from start to finish. With regular projects we strive for responsibility towards humans, animals, nature, environment and natural sources. Some of the improvements we achieved are:
With the use of special, plastic trays instead of containers we are able to transport more eggs per truckload.
Optimization of transport results in less kilometres for our trucks. Also Kwetters prefers to work together with local partners.
With regard to the wellbeing and health of animals, Kwetters in an early stage stopped with housing hens in cages.
Our vision is that people are more and more aware of their nutrition. For some time our focus has been on free range eggs and organic eggs.
In cooperation with our farmers, customers and social organisations we are continuously searching for opportunities to improve the housing of our hens.
