How to identify Bord Bia Quality Assured Eggs

All eggs in the Bord Bia Egg Quality Assurance Scheme carry the Bord Bia Quality assurance logo both on the packaging and on the egg itself.

Key Aspects of the Bord Bia Egg Quality Assurance Scheme

This scheme is designed to build on the general high health status of the country’s laying flock by introducing further measures of prevention and control. It is a code of best practice covering the rearing, production and packing of eggs.

Why Choose Eggs produced under the Bord Bia Quality Assurance Scheme

The FSAI recommends Bord Bia Quality assured eggs to avoid the possibility of salmonella particularly for use in recipes that require either raw eggs or undercooked eggs. In an advisory note of May 2010 they state:

Hen eggs produced under the Egg Quality Assurance Scheme, set up by Bord Bia in 1999, are subject to enhanced Salmonella spp. controls in addition to the regulatory requirements and are ink-jet marked with the Quality Assurance logo. Caterers using fresh shell hen eggs in egg dishes that are not cooked thoroughly should use the safest eggs available i.e. eggs produced under the Bord Bia Egg Quality Assurance Scheme.
