British Egg Academy

in partnership with Morrisons, BFREPA and 27 industry stakeholders



Delivered in partnership with Chippindale Foods, Morrisons’ own integrated egg operation, as well as numerous companies who are specialists within the Egg industry, this Academy is aimed at those wanting to join the UK’s fastest growing protein sector – eggs!

Despite being an industry worth over £1 billion to the UK economy, there is a shortage of people coming into the industry and there is very little training currently available, which is why we have developed the British Egg Academy with the support of industry specialists.
