Job Requirements:




Our company. Ė

We are an established specialty food manufacturing company with proprietary technology, equipment and processes.

We are a small, family owned, focused on developing food technologies. We believe we need to make a better use of our resources as a society. One way to do it is to make our food last longer without compromising taste or purity, that is what we work on. We started our work on new food dehydrating technology in 2001 and invented a way of drying eggs so that they keep all their flavor and functionality. Our egg crystals are the only dehydrated eggs that actually taste just like fresh eggs. And because we focus on the fundamental processing technology itself, we do not add chemicals, preservatives or any other additives to our product.
