Cedar Grove, WI – Leaders in regenerative farming and sustainability came together as an educational panel to discuss one of the fastest growing market segments in food production at the Sustainability Showcase. Set on the pastures of a regeneratively certified farm in Cedar Grove, Wis.; this special event celebrated how suppliers, retailers and consumers have the power to give back to the planet through the businesses they support.
"Helpful Hens is the fastest growing egg product in the marketplace now and the thought leader to put regenerative farming in the egg case," shares John Brunnquell, President & CEO of Egg Innovations owner of the Helpful Hens premium egg brand. "Our egg producing flocks are benefiting pastures across the Midwest as they restore the soil and help build healthy ecosystems on farm. This vision is core to our mission of Chickens. People. Planet. - It's who we are and what we do, we live it. Together with our farmers and chickens, Helpful Hens allows consumers to join the mission and make the world a better place for the next generation."
