Upstream, producers are listed and authorized by IGRECA.
IGRECA acts essentially as a consultant in choosing the food, as well as in how to improve the breeding methods. The breeding ways respecting the animals’ well-being are favoured.
IGRECA selects, then authorizes its suppliers according to a drastic procedure which adds to the European registration (EDE). Audit, signing of the contract with commitment about very precise specifications, follow-up visits, are the steps prior to any approval.
From the authorized egg-laying farms, eggs are controlled, traced and again identified upon reception. Igreca can check and validate the country of origin, the producer, the building in real time, thanks to a dedicated software.
Next, lots are identified through bar codes, sorted out, then prepared to meet the specific needs of IGRECA’s customers.
