LA FARGE, Wis., Aug. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Organic Valley Good to Go Hard-Boiled Eggs, the latest addition to the brand’s Good to Go snacking line, provide all the whole-food nutrition of Organic Valley’s award-winning organic, free range eggs in convenient peeled and ready-to-eat form.
“On-the-go snacking continues to grow and consumers are looking for healthier, organic options,” says Andrew Westrich, Organic Valley brand manager. “Our organic, free-range hard-boiled eggs provide a convenient and satisfying snack or addition to any meal. They’re the perfect extension of our Good to Go line.”
Hard-boiled eggs are beating the chickens across the road as an $83 million segment growing at 30 percent in the multi-outlet channel and 14 percent in the natural channel.* It’s easy to see why. Organic Valley’s eggs provide a wholesome alternative to high-fat, high-carb convenience snacks. Each egg contains six grams of clean protein, beneficial omega-3 fatty acids and just 60 calories.
Organic Valley, the number one selling organic brand in the natural channel,** knows how to treat their hens right. All Organic Valley eggs come from hens that are free-range in the truest sense of the word. They’re raised with ample access to a pasture that provides five square feet or more per hen. They can spread their wings and act like chickens should – scratching and foraging and relaxing in the shade. And the hens enjoy a certified organic diet containing no toxic pesticides, antibiotics, synthetic hormones or GMOs.
Available in a convenient, easy-open two-pack, Good to Go eggs will be sold in convenience stores, food cooperatives, natural food stores, and major grocery chains beginning September 1, 2017. Each 3 oz. package contains two eggs with a SRP of $1.99.
