mk's CleanMove Conveyors Make Ideal Egg Conveyor Systems
According to statistics from the American Egg Board, per capita egg consumption in the United States is trending up. From 1998 to 2016, the egg consumption of the average American went up over 11%.
This trend, combined with increasing pressure from the market and regulatory agencies to move toward cage-free and bio-secure production practices, means that egg producers in America are being forced to adapt their facilities – and fast.
One of the most important components of any egg production outfit is its system of egg transport conveyors, which bring eggs from the hens throughout the facility: from collection and grading to sorting, packing, and shipping.
If you’re an egg producer and you’re looking for new egg conveyor systems to help meet the modern demands of the industry, mk North America’s CleanMove Ultra line of stainless steel conveyors has just the solutions you’re looking for.
