This strategic project has brought fresh ideas, an added value focus and enhanced technical standards to a company’s new egg breaking, pasteurisation and packing facility. The project aims were to enhance the company’s innovation and production capabilities in order to bring new liquid egg products to Irish food manufacturing, service and retail customers. Evidence of achievement exists in the form of new liquid egg white and whole egg products in 500 and 1000 ml bottles, market intelligence, product functionality data and recipes, an expanded food manufacturing, service and retail customer base, including Musgraves, Dunnes and Tesco, and documented HACCP/food safety management systems and Standard Operating Procedures in line with BRC issue 6 requirements. The knowledge resulting from the project has helped identify new customers, highlighted the need for a technical person in high risk liquid egg production and laid the foundation for BRC issue 6 accreditation.
