We believe that everyone should have the possibility to buy organic eggs of the highest quality from hens that are well looked after. That is the driving force of our business.
Gotlandsägg + Smålandsägg
One company in two locations. Our main egg packing facility is in Ruda, Småland, as it is close to many of our producers and clients. Our second facility is situated in Stenkyrka, Gotland, where we also have our head office, finance and administration departments.
Supplying private label since 2000
Our largest volume of eggs is delivered to market leading food store chains, packaged as their own private label. In order to qualify as a private label supplier, the company is required to be at the forefront of consumer insight and product development and act as a strategic partner of the retailer.
1992 Egg production started in Stenkyrka, Gotland. Gotlandsägg was the first egg packing plant to qualify under the “Astrid Lindgren law”, which bans the use of cages for egg laying hens.
1997 Gotlandsägg launches KRAV-certified eggs and is one of a few companies to sell KRAV-certified eggs at this time.
1999 Gotlandsägg is the first egg packing plant to be certified under ISO 14001 and quality certified according to ISO 9002.
2002 Awarded “Company of the Year” by Dagens Industri.

Our Egg Packing Plants
The two egg packing plants in Småland and Gotland are the heart of our business. From here eggs are delivered to large parts of Sweden as well as to our neighbouring countries. Hundreds of millions of eggs leave these facilities every year. It is a finely tuned process showing great care and consideration for engineering and logistics.
The eggs are quality checked and sorted into grades of weight. Then they are packaged in the right carton with the correct label. Always locally sourced eggs in local packaging.
In our Gotland facility we can sort 28 500 eggs every hour. In Ruda, Småland, we can handle even more eggs – 120 000 eggs per hour.
