(parents egg-laying hens)
One of the most important things to consider regarding the quality of egg is contamination by food poisoning bacteria (Salmonella Enteritidis (SE)). Besides contamination caused by external contact with other animals, eggs are sometimes contaminated by internal infection from the body of the egg-laying hen.
To prevent infections, ISE’s quality control extends beyond egg-laying hens to include the parent stocks and we raise good quality pedigree parent stocks in a hygienic environment.
Chicks born from these breeders will become egg-laying hens.
Raising egg-laying hens
The hatched chicks grow into healthy pullets and egg-laying hens without using antibiotics at any stage, thanks to a comfortable environment, good quality feed, appropriate vaccination program, and so on.
The poultry house is designed to keep out noxious organisms and contaminants such as bacteria and to provide clean air and on-going sanitation management to allow the pullets and hens to grow in a comfortable environment with nutritious feed.
The laid eggs are collected and graded automatically by belt conveyors within the day.
Temperature control starts from this stage to maintain freshness.
All of inspoections including Haugh unit are all carried out daily to verify eggshell strength, yolk color, egg freshness and others.
Temperature variation is the worst enemy to maintain the egg freshness. Temperature control is done throughout from egg collection to shipping from the plant.
Eggs are shipped using specialized refrigerated trucks.
Eggs are subjected to radiation testing. * Links are in Japanese.
