Founded in 1895 by Danish egg producers with the aim of producing the best possible export product through quality payment for eggs. In order to complete the quality payment, D. A. Æ. the so-called producer stamp, i.e., that each manufacturer stamps all the eggs he supplies to the company with a distinguishing number assigned to him. In this way, it will be possible at any time to know which producers have delivered the individual eggs, and in the quality examination of the eggs in the egg packers, one can then ensure that deductions for those from – sorted quality degraded eggs are exported to the producers who have supplied these eggs.
D. A. Æ. Moreover, through its efforts over the years, it has contributed greatly to progress in Danish poultry breeding and a significant improvement in the quality of Danish eggs. Already in 1906 the company received the predicate “royal court supplier”.
D. A. Æ. has 56,000 cooperatives distributed in 970 local egg sales circles. The eggs are processed and packaged with state-of-the-art technical aids at 27 egg packers across the country and exported – mainly to England, Germany and Switzerland.
