Sick of looking through egg packets to find the best lot? Well, youll no longer have to do that if you shop at Morrisons.

The supermarket is bringing back a farm shop style pick-your-own local eggs stand to 200 of its stores across the country.

Customers will be able to select their own free range hen eggs, based on their size, colour, shape and speckles – which means no getting to the checkout to find your eggs are actually broken.

Youll also be able to buy anything from one single egg in a recycled box, to thirty eggs in a tray.

Morrisons is launching the stand to reassure customers that their eggs wont be cracked, or smaller than expected.

The pick-your-own scheme will also help cater to smaller or larger households and reduce waste – as currently dairy and eggs account for 9 per cent of food thrown away in the home.

So that they are easy to find, Morrisons pick-your-own free range eggs, which will be sourced by Morrisons from farms across Britain, will be located on special stands in its fresh fruit and veg areas.

To further reduce waste, Morrisons is encouraging customers to purchase their first set of eggs, then re-use their egg box upon each return visit.

The pick-your-own free range hens eggs will range in size – from 63g-73g. They will cost 22p each, £1 for six, or £5 for 30.

Robert Hofman, Egg Buyer at Morrisons said: Some customers told us they wanted to select their own eggs – to ensure none were cracked and to buy the exact amount they needed.

We thought reintroducing a traditional pick-your-own local eggs stand would help to do this. In trials customers have told us that they love selecting their own eggs, have found it has cut down on waste in their homes, and love buying produce from their local area.
