Griffiths Family Farms Philosophy
As real farmers for over 60 years, we are used to being “close to the land” and our philosophy has always been to place the needs of animals and sustainable agriculture as our top priority, without compromise.
In partnership with our customers, we welcome the ever-changing demands of today’s consumers and our committed people endeavor to deliver for them each and every day.
At our core we are family business and we cherish family values.
The Griffiths family business began in 1961 by Aled Griffiths (OBE) and remains in family ownership to this day.
Modern day food production relies upon a combination of good husbandry and new technology. Each year, the site has continued to re-invest in new innovative machinery and equipment.
The primary aim is to produce safe, healthy and nutritious eggs that consumers will enjoy. Each egg produced on site meets strict codes for welfare, hygiene and traceability. Within 12 minutes of arriving direct from the farm the eggs are inspected, graded, packed, labelled, boxed and palletised at a rate of 300,000 eggs per hour ready to despatch to customers. Eggs are available to leave our Oaklands packing site the same day and are laid 365 days a year.
“We would be proud to service your business and believe we would be a valuable long term partner.”
