The design itself of the IGRECA factory is based from the beginning on the “always going forward” concept”.
Each of the modules corresponding to a key step of the production is independent and compartmentalized from the rest of the plant.
So, the process can be divided into 3 steps, 3 sectors:
- storage of the eggs and breaking room (separating the egg white from the yolk)
- egg white before pasteurization
- pasteurized yolk and whole egg
The untreated egg enters the factory and follows a linear course to finally end up on the other side, in its processed state.
To ensure a perfect hygiene, these sectors are clearly separated.
The operators go all over the factory through a central gallery. Some strict clothing rules (single-use overalls and protections) and some statutory washing procedures are set up.
The quality laboratory carries out regular physico-chemical tests, in keeping with IGRECA’s HACCP procedure.
The IT tool developed for IGRECA ensures the regularity in the procedures, a constant and quick supervision, as well as the capacity for storing and filing data.
