About KAT

KAT, the Association for Controlled Alternative Animal Husbandry, is the inspection body in Germany and neighbouring EU countries for the scrutiny of eggs from alternative forms of hen rearing (free-range, barn and organic rearing). Virtually all eggs offered for sale on the German market in the food retail trade bear the KAT inspection label. The number of member establishments has grown steadily since KAT was founded in 1995.
