The Princess Royal has visited a multi-award-winning free-range egg producer to open a new packing centre.

St. Ewe Free Range Eggs’s new packing centre allows the company to expand its facilities and provides potential for future growth. The centre was built with the support of the Defra grant funding.

The Princess unveiled a plaque to commemorate the opening of the new packing centre, and she received a hamper from the seven-year-old daughter of the CEO.

Bex Tonks, CEO of St Ewe Free Range Eggs, said: “We are honoured to have had the Princess Royal officially open our centre, and hope that it will demonstrate how our British family business supports other family farms around the UK. If it wasn’t for their dedication to farming and the hard work of our whole team, St. Ewe Free Range Eggs wouldn’t be where they are today.”

She added: “British farmers play such an important role in nurturing the nation’s food system, as well as delivering a wide range of environmental and rural community benefits which span well beyond the farm gates. Supporting British has never been so important, and we feel incredibly proud to be part of this magnificent industry.”
