With sales reaching beyond a million last year and consumers voting it their favourite fairtrade egg, anticipation for this year’s Real Easter Egg is high. Each year the content of the Real Easter Egg changes and this year the blue egg contains a unique 3ft storybook/banner. The Premium Peace Edition contains an olive wood key ring made in Bethlehem. There is also a dairy free dark chocolate egg available. Each egg sold also includes a charitable donation.
David Marshall, who heads up the Meaningful Chocolate Company, said; “We can be found in Tesco, Waitrose and Morrison’s. However, we make very little from supermarket sales so we do rely on direct sales from churches and schools. Last year we sent more than 400,000 eggs through the post. This is a very positive example of putting our faith into practice so I hope churches will support this year’s Real Easter Egg campaign by visiting www.realeasteregg.co.uk and ordering.”
