Our reusable packaging solutions for eggs

Designed specifically to transport this uniquely fragile food item, IFCO Reusable Packaging Containers (RPCs) are the safest way to ship eggs, as they dramatically reduce breakage. The IFCO Egg RPC also cools eggs to the recommended storage temperature of +45°F/+7°C° three times faster than single-use packaging. Moreover, it is ideal for Point of Sale (POS) display. The interlocking tabs allow secure stacking and more stable pallet loads.

5 reasons to choose IFCO RPCs for eggs

Less product damage

Trials show that IFCO egg RPCs reduce breakages by up to 50% compared with single use packaging. RPC strength is not affected by moisture, also the interlocking design allows more secure pallet-building, with the load weight supported by the RPCs, not the eggs.

Superior ventilation

Eggs in IFCO RPCs cool to the recommended storage temperature of 45°F/7°C three times faster than in single-use packaging. And they stay at a consistent temperature throughout the supply chain, lengthening their shelf-life.

Ideal for retail

Our RPCs go straight from the farm to the Point of Sale (POS) with no unpacking or repacking. They make easy one-touch display for eggs, eliminating shelf-restocking or breakages caused by manual handling.

Important time savings

Our strong, standardized RPCs allow more efficient use of storage areas and support the use of automated equipment. Compared to single-use packaging, IFCO egg RPCs reduce retail-store labor costs by up to 70%.

More sustainable

IFCO RPCs produce up to 60% less CO2 and 86% less solid waste; they also use 64% less energy and 80% less water than single-use packaging.
