Working closely with poultry farmers
Quality begins at the laying farm where the eggs are produced. We carefully select the poultry farmers that we want to work with. These are reliable farms that do everything in their power to deliver a consistent level of quality. Who we choose depends on many factors and we maintain personal contact with our poultry farmers. Together, we can ensure the quality that our customers want.
Daily egg inspections
Every egg that we process is inspected for hairline cracks, break strength and dirt. We also carry out quality checks on the food safety and freshness of the eggs. If we notice any abnormalities, we liaise with the laying farm and work together to identify a solution. This is an ongoing process and is how we monitor the quality of our products.
A transparant and sustainable chain
It is our responsibility to know everything about the origin of the eggs and the route they take to the customer. We ensure that the origin of every egg can be traced back to the shelf. Retailers and industry can count on a transparent and sustainable chain.
