Glendale plants trees for free range egg farms

Glendale has been working to plant more than 75,000 trees through a partnership with egg marketing company Noble Foods.

Glendale has been managing a tree planting programme across the UK this year.

Glendale's operations director Philip Sugden said: "This is an exciting opportunity for Glendale to extend our relationship with Noble Foods to a national basis. The project helps to promote free range eggs and an improved habitat for the hens."

Free range egg farmers have been encouraged to plant trees on their range to helps the birds express their natural behaviour.

Noble Foods contract supplies manager John Holt added: "The harshest winter for more than 20 years has reduced the available planting time considerably but the Glendale team have worked hard to ensure the trees were planted on time."
