Every weekday eggs are collected from farms on specially designed pallets. This system allows for gentle egg handling with maximum air movement so eggs arrive at the packing centre safely and cool.
The pallets are automatically unloaded and 100,000 eggs per hour are gently placed on the grading machine and pass through six quality grading sections:
• Crack detection
• Blood detection
• Ink Jet Printing
• Visual human inspection
Only eggs which have passed these quality tests are carefully packed in a variety of packaging depending on customer needs, dated, labelled and delivered.
