The egg collection starts with our Big Dutchman® Colony2+ Nest, where the eggs roll onto a belt that brings them into the processing room.

In the processing room, we install your choice of egg-processing equipment. The Prinzen 70 Egg Packer (25,220 eggs per hour) and the Moba Farm Packer Diamond FPX100 (up to 36,000 eggs per hour) are both high-quality Dutch-made machines that we distribute and install.
