ORKA Food Technology introduced Egg Tester Ultimate at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) 2022 a little over a year ago, and the global poultry industry has seen significant value in this new egg quality device.

The Egg Tester Ultimate is the all-in-one egg quality testing device that measures and calculates egg weight, albumen height, yolk color, Haugh unit, USDA grade, eggshell strength and eggshell thickness with one unit.

Josh Yoshida, VP of Sales and Marketing of ORKA Food Technology, tells us that the Egg Tester Ultimate is gaining strong recognition and market share based on its versatility, convenience and reliability.

“Many customers are telling us self in–line calibration (automatic calibration) that the Egg Tester Ultimate offers is really convenient. They tell us that normally this type of sophisticated machine is required to be sent back to the manufacturer at least once a year for re-calibration. Shipping cost can be costly and the time loss during this non-service time is significant and very, very inconvenient.”

Customers said even though the initial cost of the Egg Tester Ultimate is higher, it’s offset by not needing to send it in for recalibration which removes the following: shipping cost, calibration fee and service time. Thus, it’s definitely an advantage for customers and is why it is gaining strong recognition and market share.”.
