Every choice we make, from the clothes we buy to the Food we eat, has an impact on the world. OGGS plant-based alternatives to everyday foods taste as delicious as you’ve always known them, whilst doing their very best to positively change the future of our planet, animals and the people (you) who buy them. By choosing Oggs Aquafaba over eggs, every tonne of egg protein is replaced by chickpeas instead and greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by around 33.7 tonnes. That’s equivalent to 81,995 miles of driving a car or driving from Land’s End to John O Groats 94 times!
It is estimated that more than 60 percent of the world’s eggs are produced in industrial systems, mostly using barren battery cages.
