Burnbrae Farms is a 6th generation Canadian family business who have been operating in Canada for more than 130 years and committed to sustainable egg farming.
With a mission to produce nutritious, affordable eggs for Canadians while conserving the natural environment, the family has always been passionate about responsible animal care, and they work hard to reduce their environmental impact.
The family farm supports poultry research with a view to improving hen health and welfare and have invested in solar at two of its operations in Ontario, one of which is the first and largest solar-powered egg-producing farm in Canada.
Our robust moulded fibre egg packaging is 100% recyclable and biodegradable, which dovetails perfectly with the company's eco-friendly ethics. The cartons they use (the 12- and 18-egg HartVue and the 12-egg HartTop) enable very attractive pack designs, helping to build a loyal customer base.
We were delighted to be able to pitch in with another amazing pack design to make their 130th anniversary celebration unmissable.
Of course, with its extra-large advertising area, the HartTop carton was perfect for the job. It gave them ample space for QR codes as a window for consumers to read the story of Burnbrae Farms and their family history.
As Burnbrae’s CEO and President, Margaret Hudson says:
“Sourcing high quality sustainable egg packaging to transport our fragile product has always been critically important to our business – so we appreciate the quality and innovation that the Hartmann team has given us over so many years.”
About Burnbrae Farms
The Hudson family farm was first founded in 1891 by Joseph and Jean Hudson in Lyn, Ontario. They named it Burnbrae in honour of their homeland and Scottish heritage – after the key features of the farm – a “burn” is the Scottish word for stream and “brae” is a hillside.
