Humane Society International (HSI) is pleased that Snowdale Holdings Pty Ltd, one of Australia's largest egg producers, has been ordered to pay more than $1 million by WA's Federal Court for deceiving consumers over free range eggs. The company was fined $750,000 for falsely labelling some of its products free range, and has been ordered to pay an additional $300,000 in court costs. The case was brought by the ACCC following a complaint from Humane Society International in 2012 and today the Federal Court issued the record penalty.
