Eggs are an essential food, used in a vast array of recipes. It is often the main ingredient or else used to thicken, emulsify or enrich dishes. In food service though, it cannot be used in its natural shell form, for health safety reasons. This is where egg products come in, like liquid egg, fried eggs, egg bites, enhanced Spanish omelettes, and more. They offer so many benefits to the food service industry!

Quality fit for any use

To guarantee the quality of the meals served and prevent any risk of microbiological contamination, shell eggs are prohibited in food service kitchens. On the contrary, egg products made in factories according to strict procedures are subjected to a whole battery of tests throughout the entire production chain. Processes established based on a HACCP approach guarantee that they are harmless to consumers. Continuous improvements make them perfectly safe, as recognised by multiple certifications (particularly ISO and BRC).

The sanitary quality of food is essential, but its sensory qualities also need to be on point. Between their taste, texture and appearance, egg products are pleasing to the eye and the palate!
