Quality Laboratory

“Farm to fork”

Every phase of the farm to fork process is controlled by veterinarians and professionals from our quality department to ensure our hens provide the best fresh eggs and egg products.
We conduct quality analyses in every phase of the process, beginning with the feeding of our laying hens: We manufacture the feed they eat eat and we monitor multiple quality standards such as the composition of the eggs we market, for example.

Our eggs are collected on a daily basis from our farms located less than 25 km from the sorting and packaging warehouse in Cabanillas del Campo (Guadalajara).

Our traceability system enables us to keep permanent track of the barn of origin and the date on which DAGU eggs are laid: Once sorted by weight, each egg is marked with the corresponding farm code and carefully packaged to ensure safe transportation.

We have also decided to acquire the safest and most environmentally friendly packaging system there is, which is due to arrive on the market in the first quarter of 2021.

Pre-packed eggs leave DAGU in trucks on a daily basis, meticulously packaged to ensure they remain firmly in place and are kept at the right temperature. The eggs are available at stores within 24 hours: fresh and in perfect condition.
