Sauder's Eggs Processing Plant

The PennAg Industries Association website includes a fascinating tour of our modern, high-tech egg packing facility in Ephrata, Pennsylvania.

Click on the "Take the Tour" link below to see the automated machines that allow employees to easily, quickly, and safely inspect, clean, and pack eggs into the cartons we see on our grocery shelves.

Eggs are received daily at the facility, arriving by truck from local family and advanced agricultural poultry farms. They leave this facility ready to be placed on local supermarket shelves.
