The term egg products refers to processed and convenience forms of eggs for foodservice and commercial kitchen use. Available in either chilled or frozen format. A combination of both food safety and convenience makes Zeagold egg products a good choice.
All Zeagold's pasteurised and ready to eat egg products are micro-tested and positively released prior to use.
Zeagold processed egg products:
- Blends - Quiche mix, Omelette mix and Scrambled egg mix
Eggs are processed through a plant that cracks the shells and extracts the yolk and albumen. The egg processing unit enables the egg product to be pasteurised hence eliminating all bacteria and especially salmonella. This process meets ANZFSA standards.
Zeagold's purpose built site in Auckland was commissioned in 2010. This significant investment has resulted in the implementation of world class equipment to enable processed product of a higher standard than was previously possible.
The quality of Zeagold's products has always been of prime importance to our company. From the feed through to the final egg product, we undertake a series of tests that monitor the quality of the end product our customers receive.
