The process includes several actions starting from collection of eggs in production plant to final packaging and handling of processed egg products. The advantages of egg processing includes long shelf life, low bacteria contamination, ease of handling and storage.
The growing consumer awareness towards benefits of processed foods and outbreak of bacterial contamination through egg products has driven the need for egg processing. Food manufacturers across the globe are focused on procurement of high-quality and nutritious egg products to cater this shifting preference of consumers.
