Eggs, count on QUALITY
Quality eggs, whether in Pennsylvania, Maryland, or Ohio, begin
on the farm, with the most advanced strains of laying hens available.
Sauder's producers house their chickens in a controlled, stress-free
environment, where each hen drinks as much as she wants to and
lays an average of five eggs a week. Because the chickens are
well cared for, they lay eggs that are of excellent quality.
Sauder's works closely with farmers to be sure their hens start
off in this healthy environment, with the right kind of lighting,
ventilation, and feed.
To preserve the exceptional quality of our eggs, the farmers
who supply Sauder's Eggs have refrigerated storage rooms that
maintain optimum storage conditions for fresh eggs (45 degrees
Fahrenheit and 80% humidity.) Eggs are then transported to Sauder's
Plants (typically less than 50 miles) on refrigerated trucks.
Sauder's processing plants incorporate the latest egg-handling
technology to maintain quality and food safety. Electronic candling
systems help ensure that our eggs are clean and crack free, and
rapid processing on automated equipment helps preserve freshness.
Eggs received in the morning are routinely washed, candled, sized,
packed and loaded onto delivery trucks that very same day!
to quality control enfolds every aspect of our operations,
including the fleet of more than 65 trucks that deliver eggs
to our processing facilities and back out to the marketplace.
