Trinidad and Tobago, the two islands country in the southern part of the Caribbean Sea has an egg industry which has been led over years by two major egg producers. The one who has started with egg marketing in retail nearly 30 years ago was El Chico Ltd. who for over 70 years established their brand name before selling it and shutting down its family run layer operation.

Last year the charismatic doyen of the Trini egg world, Michael D´Ornellas decided to re-enter the market and placed his first flock of day old chicks in May 2020 and putting them in production in October 2020. Michael had realized the need to produce an egg that was of an even higher quality and higher standard, than the egg he had produced previously. His new brand “Bella Chiquita Eggs“ is a result of careful consideration of the world wide preference for a healthier egg, laid by happier chickens. His chickens are both grain and grass fed, in a cage free environment and they are not fed hormones or steroids. Michael D `Ornellas has been able to attain all of this and still keep the price of the eggs in a range which is affordable to the average consumer.

“Bella Chiquita Eggs” have been well accepted in the Trinidad retail market in a relatively short period of time. Ovotherm is proud and happy to have been partners in this exciting project that has created very positive feedback from consumers for the quality egg and creative presentation in the environmentally best packaging made 100% of recycled PET beverage bottles.
