What is an egg packer?
An egg packer is a piece of equipment used on farms to pack eggs into trays ready for sale.
How does an egg packer work?
It positions the eggs and then a vacuum egg transfer unit places the collected eggs onto an egg tray – paper or plastic. However, it will depend upon the type of unit you purchase as to how many eggs it can pack per hour.
Types of egg packers
There are many different types of egg packers available on the market depending on your requirements and needs. There are two egg packers that we recommend to our customers which are:
- The Idra egg packer (either the 14.5 or 22)

Alongside these examples, these are others available for you to purchase however, these are the two chosen packers which we have used in our blog post.
