Purveyor of eggs to the Royal Danish Court
Danæg was founded in 1895 and was appointed ”Purveyor to the Royal Danish Court” already in 1906. We are very proud of this title – the royal warrant – which is an important part of the company’s history.
Appointment on the Queen’s birthday
The royal warrant cannot be bought, but is appointed by the Majesty. When the application has been submitted, it is assessed and approved by the Lord Chamberlain’s department and then presented to Her Majesty the Queen who personally appoints the new purveyor to the court. According to an old tradition, the appointment takes place on the Monarch’s birthday. When the royal warrant has been appointed, the company is entitled to use the crown together with the title and the company’s name according to the current rules.
Longstanding trade with the Royal Court
As Purveyor to the Royal Danish Court, the company does not only deliver goods or services to the members of the royal family and the royal household. Each single day all Danes use one or more royal products from eggs, sugar and cold cuts to cars, can openers and glass. Both companies and individuals can submit their application to become Purveyor to the Court. Companies must be engaged in longstanding and regular trade with the court in addition to being well established, financially stable and well run.
