New Egg Lasts Up To 60 Days On The Shelf
A Kingsville, Ontario egg producer has found a new way to market his product. Jack Bechard now sells "Eggs T' Go" hard-boiled and sealed eggs that keep fresh for up to 60 days on the shelf.
The eggs are steam-cooked in a special machine (steam cooking avoids cracking) and then coated with a thin cellulose coating in a special machine. The coating can be naturally colored, or colored like Easter Eggs.
The company packages the eggs in 6-packs and 2-packs and sells them in grocery stores and vending machines. The vending machine versions come with salt and pepper packets so you can season to taste. A 6-pack of Eggs T' Go sells for about $1.25.
Eggs T' Go are marketed in the U.S. by distributor Frank Olmsted of Olsted & Co., Tucson, Ariz., who brought the idea over from Europe, where long-life hard-boiled eggs have been popular for years. The eggs are available in selected areas of the U.S. and Canada.
