The Sonnenei brand is becoming the most sustainable egg in Germany.
The eggs from Sonnenei ("sunny egg") are already organic, with hens given free access to open-air runs and fed with organic cereals. Now, German organic farming enterprise Mustergeflügelhof Leonhard Häde is taking its egg brand to a new level with CO2 neutral egg production measures in place throughout its value chain.
Sonnenei’s CO2 neutral value chain
An organic free-range egg has a carbon footprint of about 200 g. And Sonnenei is on its way to 0 g with a local value chain that keeps all production elements as close to the farm as possible. This includes:
“The CO2 neutral imagic2® carton supports our efforts for climate neutral egg production. The transparency and traceability of our products help us show our customers why sustainability is important and how we hope to achieve a zero environmental footprint.”

About Mustergeflügelhof Leonhard Häde
Founded in 1927, the German organic farm is a family-run traditional company. Even before the actual organic boom gripped Germany, the farm was one of the first to produce organic eggs in the mid-1970s. Today, Mustergeflügelhof Leonhard Häde offers a wider assortment of organic products including eggs, chicken, pasta and egg liqueur. The farm has a sharp focus on food safety, quality, animal welfare, ethics and sustainability.
For his commitment, Fabian Häde was awarded the CeresAward - farmer of the year - in 2019.
