Home » About us » Sustainability


GI-OVO was founded in 1999. Our aim was, is and will always be to maximum support all parties within the egg industry to handle their products in a more sustainable and cost-effective way.

We have been working with this specific challenge in mind since the founding of our company and all of our experience and technical know-how has led to the introduction of the EggsCargoSystem (ECS). The ECS is the world’s most popular (cost) efficient and durable system to handle, transport and store chicken eggs, quail eggs, duck- and turkey- and other eggs.

Especially when working with extremely fragile products such as eggs, a careful way to handle, transport and store eggs is a prerequisite. This is exactly what our ECS was built for.

High-quality egg handling components that are built to last

One of the main reasons for the success of the ECS is the constant high quality of every component we manufacture. The components are constructed to work together flawlessly and the ECS sizes have become the norm in the industry.

Compatibility is key in the egg handling industry. Since there are various stages in the complete production process from farmer to retail establishments, it is vital that all of the systems work flawlessly.

High quality components made out of virgin plastics can be used over and over again. Where it is virtually impossible to clean and reuse cardboard products, our egg trays and other components are easy to clean.

Durable production processes

Being sustainable is in our DNA. Our mission is to enhance the world of egg handling and transport to make the industry more durable and sustainable: in everything we do, we keep this mission in mind. 

In all of our production processes, we ensure a durable way of working. For instance, we only use virgin raw materials to ensure a long product lifespan. In making our products, we take into account that they need to be recycled at a certain point and we make this process as easy as possible. 

Also we take measures to minimise our waste where we can and we produce our own green electricity. 

Egg distribution made sustainable

Did you know that about 14% of all food globally is lost during distribution? Valuable products like eggs are very fragile and need to be handled with great care during handling and transportation.

The ECS is designed specifically for this. The components are made to last. Each part is purpose-designed to perfectly hold eggs, so they can be transported in the safest way possible. This drastically reduces eggshell breakage and increases sustainability in food distribution. We also offer reusable egg packaging solutions such as our eco-friendly CEEP and EggyPlay egg packs.
