Packaging

We have four egg packing centres, strategically located across the UK.

We have industry leading Free Range and alternative packaging centres strategically located across the North, East, South and West of the UK, which also operate as delivery and regional collection hubs.  The geographical spread of our operations significantly reduces delivery mileage to our customers and facilitates an efficient regional collection service for our nationwide producer base.

The geographical spread and scale of our packing centres and producers effectively serves the business by providing contingency for major events such as AI disease outbreaks and catastrophic events.

Our Standlake free-range egg packing centre, which was launched in Spring 2014, completely redefines the concept of an egg grading facility; it uses the latest technology and most advanced equipment in the world.

Designed primarily with energy saving and H&S in mind, it’s predicted to be the most efficient egg packing centre in Europe – if not the world!

The centre currently grades over two million eggs every day and 13 million a week.

As our southern distribution hub it handles over 25 million eggs a week.

Distribution

Our logistics operation is called, not surprisingly, Noble Logistics.

We have just under 200 drivers, operating 100 vehicles from seven sites. They collect eggs from over 440 individual egg suppliers across England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. The fresh eggs are then transferred to one of our packing centres, where they’re packed for delivery to customers.

Our temperature-controlled vehicles deliver seven days a week, either direct to store or regional distribution centres, covering over 14 million kilometres per year and consuming 5 million litres of fuel.
