About Nutri Group
Founded in 2005, Nutri Group was born out of the initiative of a small group of egg producers who joined forces in 1987 to market their products and those of other producers. Today, this “farmer owned” model is applied coast-to-coast, employing modern and efficient plants to grade and process eggs and enable the Group to market more than 2.5 billion regular and specialty eggs (Omega, free run, organic, etc.) each year.
