Having responded to cheap, interstate eggs in the 90s, the new millennium brought a new surge of extremely cheap interstate eggs into South Australia in early 2005.
This time, Days Eggs responded by going high tech and commissioning the first of three, modern, state-of-the-art, technologically-advanced and environmentally-controlled, layer sheds.
These wonders of farming technology could safely and healthily house 38,000 hens each, and they were the first and only pre-enriched, colony-type, hen housing in South Australia.
This innovation demanded high capital outlays, so it was decided to corporatise the business to make sure future plans could be funded.
So, in September 2006, Days Eggs Pty Ltd was born, with the primary focus of providing South Australian retailers and consumers with the highest quality of affordable and locally produced eggs.
Since then, Days Eggs has focused on integrating our entire operations, from the rearing of day old chicks, to providing first quality table eggs. The vision was never to be the biggest, but to be the best at what we do.
Soon after this momentous step, Days Eggs then built a new egg grading complex in 2008, installing and commissioning a new, high-speed, large-volume, and computerised, Moba egg grading machine.
This new machine was also an inline washing and sanitising plant, safely cleaning, grading and processing up to 60,000 eggs per hour.
