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 Sustainable Egg Assurance Scheme (SEAS).
The SEAS incorporates the principals of ISO 9002, HACCP, and all DAFM & EU legislation. It also incorporates the principles and goals of the Origin Green standards for Sustainability – thus securing the sustainable production of Irish eggs, into the future, for the Irish consumer.
Riverview Eggs Ltd was the first producer/packer to be granted the SEAS Certification in 1998. The Bord Bia SEAS standard is now a pre-requisite for supplying all retail groups in Ireland and most catering outlets.
Riverview Eggs maintains a achieved ‘Grade AA’ 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.
