Cage Free Egg Update

In October 2014 Elizabeth Andrews made the commitment to only purchase cage free eggs.

Since then we have had nothing but fantastic comments about the quality of our egg sandwiches. Whether it’s the placebo effect or not, it appears that our cakes rise that little bit more, our meringues are fluffier and our hollandaise sauces are richer.

Let’s put our last three years of only purchasing cage free eggs in perspective.

On average, we go through 2,800+ eggs per week. By the time we celebrate three years of purchasing only caged eggs in October this year, that’ll be almost half a million eggs! Taking that one step further, we’ve freed up over 500 chickens per day from living and dying in cages.

We buy our eggs from the Australian Egg Co Pty Ltd in Pakenham and have done for some time. Over the past three years we have managed to go from cage free eggs to free range eggs with little or no impact on our cost base. So next time you tuck into an Elizabeth Andrews egg sandwich, you can do so with a smile on your face and in the knowledge that the eggs came from happy chicken!

What’s On in Melbourne in September?

Royal Melbourne Show
Wed 23rd Sep – Sun 3rd Oct

You know Winters almost a thing of the past when the show comes along! Whether it’s the animals, the rides, the food or the stunts, there’s something for everyone at the Royal Melbourne Show.

Melbourne Fashion Week
Fri 1st Sep – Fri 8th Sep

Now in its 23rd year, MFW is a week-long line-up of fashion events and exclusive shopping experiences that draws thousands to the city and enhances Melbourne’s reputation as an innovative fashion and retail destination.

From Tue 29th Aug

Based on the Warner Bros. movie which starred Whitney Houston and Kevin Kostner, THE BODYGUARD has been hailed as “LONDON’S BEST MUSICAL” by UKs Magic FM, and “THE HOTTEST TICKET IN TOWN” by the Sunday Mirror.


On the first of September I make a point of taking a deep breath and reviewing how the year’s tracking. I used to do it at the start of July but I found the dead of Winter was not a great time to take stock. The first of September’s a good time as it’s the start of Spring and we tend to see Melbourne dusting itself off from the Winter doldrums and getting itself ready for the good weather ahead.

I’ve got a few personal goals that I’m hoping to achieve this year. They include losing some weight, doing a few projects in the garden I’ve been putting off, teaching my son golf and learning to fly (my wife calls it a mid-life crisis).

From the business perspective, my goals are somewhat different to previous years.

  1. Continue to grow the business at 20% per annum (which we have done for the past 4 years in a row)
  2. Reduce our carbon footprint
  3. Overhaul our website
  4. Introduce a night shift to Elizabeth Andrews

With these goals in mind, what impresses me most of all with the team at Elizabeth Andrews is their “Can Do” attitude. It’s not always easy getting up at 4am every morning but without fail, we’re all up-and-at-‘em doing our best for our customers and the company. I’m eternally grateful to the colleagues I work with, the customers who support us and our suppliers who are able to respond to our ever-changing needs.

Then of course there’s Melbourne, that just keeps giving! It’s no wonder Melbourne’s just been awarded the world’s most liveable city for the 7th year in a row!

Food Quote

Did You Know?

This year, as part of my commitment to reducing the carbon footprint Elizabeth Andrews leaves, I’m signing each of our vans up to the Greenfleet carbon offset program as their registration comes up for renewal.

Cooking Tip

The inside of the garlic clove is the sweetest. If your recipe requires raw garlic, only squeeze the clove once as the outer is bitter. If you’re cooking the crushed garlic, you can crush it twice and then cook it as it will sweeten as you cook it.

Your Say

Good afternoon Louise,

Thank you for delivering the catering on time today, it was much appreciated.

The food looked amazing as usual and our Magistrates could not wait to start eating!

A couple of sandwiches went missing before the start of the meeting!

Thank you

Kind regards

Lydie – Childrens Court
