Specialty egg

Vital Farms has numerous competitors of various sizes, including producers of private label products, as well as producers of other branded butter and egg products who compete for commercial marketing support and consumer dollars.

The company competes with large egg companies such as Cal-Maine, Inc. and large international food companies such as Ornua Co-operative Limited (Kerrygold).

It also competes directly with local and regional egg and dairy companies, as well as specialty private-label products processed by other egg and dairy companies.

Vital Farms believes that its standards produce happy hens on varied diets, which produce better eggs.

According to this company, there is a seismic shift in consumer demand for natural, traceable, clean-label, great-tasting and nutritious foods.
