Egg business’s national award


Alford-based egg producer L J Fairburn and Son has been named Food Business of the Year in a national awards scheme for the free range egg industry.

The family team collected the honour at the The British Free Range Egg Producers Association Conference held at the National Motorcycle Museum, in Birckenhill, Solihull, on Wednesday.

The awards aim to highlight those who have positively affected the free range egg sector during the last 12 months and are committed to shaping a successful future for it.

Daniel Fairburn, managing director of L J Fairburn and Son, said his team was ‘ecstatic’ with the win.

“It is an honour to be named Food Business of the Year – a highly prestigious accolade from within our industry,” he said.

“I would like to thank all of our hard-working producers who work with us everyday as they too have won this award in our eyes.”
