Animal welfare is important to us, because happy chickens lay the best eggs. At Munax we know what is happening in our production chain: how the feed is produced, where the eggs are being laid, the welfare of the chicken, and how the eggs are packed. With quality control we are able to ensure chicken welfare.
It’s difficult to estimate the quality of eggs just by looking at them. That makes it even more important to have full knowledge of the origin. Our task is to maintain the excellence of the egg on its way to your table.
Recycling and minimizing the amount of waste is under constant development. Paper, cardboard, and plastics are recycled, energy waste is sorted from mixed waste, and is burned to energy. Egg shells are used for lime stone in the fields, and side products are used to enrich animal feed.
We take the environment into consideration in all daily actions and purchases. We collect eggs in plastic trays which can be used over and over again. The circulation life is up to 10 years for a tray. We drive our eggs ourselves which gives us the opportunity to plan the routes smart to avoid unnecessary miles.
Munax Oy is a member of The Environmental Register of Packaging RINKI.
We have FSSC 22000 food safety certificate which guides all daily actions to ensure a safe end product for the consumer.
To maintain a high hygiene standard, we have regular internal hygiene education and professional training for the Finnish Hygiene Proficiency exam.
The eggs in Finland are salmonella free. This is no co-incidence, but a result of a strict salmonella control program. We follow the Finnish Food Authorities Evira’s regulations for salmonella testing in all our production facilities. We also monitor that our producers follow their salmonella testing program.
Responsible Purchasing Policy
To become a contract producer, the producer have to fill in a form with information of the layers. This gives us the required knowledge about the chickens. We know our producers to maintain an implicit tracking of the raw material.
We require that material suppliers follow the EU legislation. We demand food safety certificate if the material is directly in contact with food.
We always aim to 100 % delivery assurance with agreed quality, amount and delivery time. We want to be flexible and reliable supplier that meet the changing needs for our customers and consumers. The products we deliver are always of high quality and are safe to use.
