The egg’s journey starts from the time it’s laid. Once laid, the egg rolls onto a conveyor belt. The belt brings 216,000 eggs per hour into the processing room, and straight into the washer. Out of the washer it goes directly into the ultraviolet sanitizing cabinet then passes under the dirt and leak detection cameras. Rolling over the scales determines the size of each egg. During this process, the smallest of cracks are also detected. Next, the eggs arrive at the packers which are assigned by weight. The packers gently but quickly place eggs in cartons or flats. From packers, to take-away belts, to our trucks, to the stores, to your family table. All while not a single hand touches the egg.
