Here is what I found: The Cornucopia Institute has put out a very informative report entitled “Scrambled Eggs: Separating Factory Farm Egg Production from Authentic Organic Agriculture.” This 72-page report investigates different forms of egg production, explains the many definitions of the term “organic” and animal welfare standards, as well as shares information on the viewpoint of industrial organic egg producers.
My favorite part is the Organic Egg Scorecard, which rates egg brands according to how the eggs are raised and produced. Each brand has it’s own report if you click the brand name.
If you buy organic eggs but have wondered about just how the eggs are produced (especially with the latest egg recall), check out this report to see how your brand stacks up. It’s a very interesting report.
