Our founder Margaret Kelleher, with her position in the Irish Egg Association, set up the first testing for Salmonella in the laying flocks of Ireland in 1988. This was to prove integral in the coming years for the creation of the Egg Quality Assurance Scheme with Bord Bia. D.J Kelleher was appointed to the technical committee of Bord Bia for the creation of the Egg Quality Assurance Scheme (EQAS).
The EQAS incorporates the principals of ISO 9002, HACCP and all DAFF legislation. Riverview Eggs Ltd was the first producer/packer to be granted the EQAS Certification in 1998. The Bord Bia EQAS standard is now a pre-requisite for supplying all retail groups in Ireland and most catering outlets.
In September 2006, Riverview Eggs achieved ‘Grade A’ status in the Retail Consortium Global Food Standard (BRC) Accreditation. BRC is globally respected as the foremost accreditation standard attainable for product quality control and safety, in the food industry.
Riverview Eggs continues to maintain a Grade A status with the BRC Accreditation and the Bord Bia EQAS certification.
