Gipster expands to the United States. Today, October 11, 2021, construction begins on four farms in Indiana. Gipster eggs and meat should be on the shelves of the American supermarket chain Groger before Christmas 2022.
Groger sells eggs exclusively, and adds roosters and broiler meat to its range. For this, Gipster has concluded a multi-year contract with a supermarket chain.
The new Gipster farms are operated by MPS egg farms. This family business acquired the rights to operate the concept in close collaboration with Gipster. The company has been one of the top ten egg producers in the United States since 1875.
Farms in the United States Copies of gipster Dutch farms. There is no concession to other ideas. For example, American chickens eat round fodder, and eggs have the highest CO2 neutrality and the highest animal welfare. In addition, the Gipster name and brand values in the United States are the same.
Gipster will begin to lay less than 30 million eggs a year in the United States. Its aim is to grow to more than 100 million soon.
In 2017 Gipster opened his first farm in Ayrlow-Wenray. By moving to the United States, Gipster shows that the company’s vision is relevant not only to the Netherlands but to other parts of the world. Director Mark Voss: “We see that Circular Vision provides income not only to the climate but also to the farmer, the supermarket and the consumer. We are coming, but we are having serious conversations in other parts of the world as well.
“We strive for a diet with as few animals as possible,” says co-founder Gipster Rudd Zanders. “An organization that does not pollute animals, but helps clear up residual runoff released during food production. Our chickens improve discarded food into eggs, meat and fertile manure.”
Professor Dr. Imke de Boer, University of Wageningen & Research: “We & # 39; re pleased to see Gipster putting into practice many aspects of our research into the contribution of animals to a healthy and sustainable diet. This is precisely the collaboration between scientists and farmers. That fact must be taken into account. “
