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.
The quality of the egg is difficult to assess from the outside. Therefore, it is important to know where the egg comes from. At Munax Oy, we know what’s going on in our chain: how chicken chicks live and what they eat, how feed is produced and how eggs are packed. That way we can promise you a quality egg. At Munax, environmental issues are particularly well taken. One significant thing for the environment is that we have set out to dry the wet manure of the chickens. The manure is dried by the heat produced by the chickens themselves immediately on the farm. Dry hygienized organic approved fertilizer binds carbon back into the soil and no runoff occurs in the water.
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.
