For the poultry industry, eggshell breakage is and has always been a major financial drain yet, nature’s wonder of making the eggs almost impossible to break when held in a straight line and pressed along its long axis is a gift in disguise. Birthing from this core principle, egg punnet packaging has been revolutionary in multiple ways.
Despite its relative strength, the egg is an extremely fragile product and even with the best handling methods, serious losses can result from shell damage. Economical marketing generally requires that eggs be protected by the adoption of specialized packaging and handling procedures.
AVI Egg Trays are produced from r-PET Films which ensures the product is a 100% recyclable, and environmentally friendly. The egg punnet packaging protects the eggs from micro-organisms, natural predators, loss of moisture, tainting, temperatures that cause deterioration possible crushing while being handled, stored or transported.
Proper handling and storage help control moisture loss, but appropriate packaging may also help prevent it. Eggs need to breathe, hence the packaging material used must allow for the entrance of oxygen. The material used must be clean and odourlessto prevent possible contamination and tainting. The packaging must be made to withstand handling, storage and transport methods of the most diverse kind and to protect the eggs against temperatures that cause deterioration and humidity. Finally, consumers like to see what they are buying, especially if it concerns fresh produce. An egg package should be designed so that the customers not only recognize the product as suchbut can also see the eggs they are buying.
