Orka Instruments Gain Recognition in South America

07 February 2014

SOUTH AMERICA - Instruments manufactured by ORKA Food Technology (“EggTester.Com”) are gaining strong recognition in South American market based on their versatility, cost and reliability.

During January 28-30, 2014, ORKA participated in IPPE 2014 at Atlanta and attracted huge number of potential buyers from South American countries. Until now this region was not the main market for ORKA but we are feeling that the time has changed.

ORKA may be looking for local partners and/or distributors to penetrate into local markets more extensively. Should you be interested, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The current ORKA range comprises:

  • The Egg Analyzer; this instrument determines the weight of eggs, albumen height, Haugh units, yolk color and USDA grade for routine quality control and regulatory compliance

  • The Egg Force Reader; this device measures the force required to crush a shell and is a direct measure of marketability

  • The Egg Shell Thickness Gauge; this instrument uses ultrasound to measure the thickness of shells for quality control and research applications.

The ORKA range of instruments is used extensively in QC laboratories operated by egg producers, packers, universities, regulatory authorities, and primary breeders.
