‘FitChix’ – Honest Eggs Launches Fitness Tracker For Chickens

Honest Eggs Co. are showing people how free and healthy their chickens are by launching the first-ever fitness tracker designed for chooks.

VMLY&R collaborated with Airbag to create ergonomic, chicken friendly fitness trackers that doesn’t impose on day-to-day life and behaviour.

Honest Eggs Co. general manager Roger Boyd “Honest Eggs Co. is on a mission to change egg farming for the better.

In an extremely confusing category, Honest Eggs Co. is an easy choice as it is the one you can count on to be honest and transparent about the way we farm”.

As well as the fitness trackers and step count on each egg laid, FitChix will appear in OLV, OOH, Social and in-store to educate consumers on the importance of sustainable, regenerative farming practices.

So, make sure your next carbonara is an Honest one!”

Charmaine Griffith, growth director VMLY&R said “As shoppers become increasingly conscious of their environmental impact, Honest Eggs Co. is helping to bring the promise of regenerative farming front and centre on supermarket shelves. As one of Australia’s foremost pioneers in this field, we’re proud to share their
