CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As the leading advocate for female consumers, WomenCertified Inc. is delighted to honor Eggland's Best with the 2016 Women's Choice Award® as America's Most Recommended™ Eggs. This award is based on a national survey that was distributed to over 100,000 women across America who were asked to select the brands that they most highly recommend to their family and friends.
"The Women's Choice Award's mission is to identify which brands are most recommended by women," said Delia Passi, CEO and Founder. "When a woman is willing to recommend a brand or service to others, it means that business has earned her loyalty. Those are the businesses we wish to recognize for their efforts and commitment to the number one consumer – women. By receiving the Women's Choice Award, Eggland's Best shows their commitment to empower women to make smart buying choices."
Female consumers represent a driving economic powerhouse, controlling 65%, or approximately $20 trillion annually, in global spending and more than 80% of US spending, according to the Harvard Business Review and the Continuum's Women and Children Research Group. Coupling that with a recent Nielsen report on global trust in advertising, which stated that 92% of consumers trust recommendations from people they know over any other form of advertising, reveals the significance of being an America's Most Recommended brand by women.
"Awards such as the Women's Choice Award are especially important to Eggland's Best because they are based on the honest opinions of our valued customers," says Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland's Best. "It is reassuring to be recognized as the most recommended egg among women and to know they value eggs that are healthier and better in taste, nutrition, and freshness."
By adhering to a strict quality assurance program, Eggland's Best is able to provide all customers with products they can trust for themselves and for their families. Due to their proprietary all-vegetarian hen feed, Eggland's Best eggs contain 25 percent less saturated fat, ten times more vitamin E, four times more vitamin D and more than double the omega-3 fatty acids when compared to ordinary eggs.
"We are pleased to salute Eggland's Best for their focus on excellence, a commitment that is recognized by women consumers nationwide," said Passi.
