In 8 years the total production has increased and reached to 2.100.000 eggs/day currently.
Burdan Egg Production comprises three separate facilities within.
- Chick rearing facility.
- Egg production facility.
- Egg weighing and packaging facility.
CHICK GROWING FACILITY
There are five poultry houses established on a total area of 56.000 m2 with an indoor area of 10.500 m2. The houses have a total capacity of 600.000 chicks. At the chick rearing facility, there is also a social facility as well as the poultry houses.
Poultry House Automation Systems
Feeding, lighting and ventilation are fully automated at the chick houses. Automation is ensured with temperature, humidity and water pressure sensors and timers.
Chick houses are convenient with regards to sufficient and clean air and proper temperature for the animals to live healthy. Thanks to the ventilation and heating systems inside the houses, the temperature is kept at the desired levels all 12 months of the year.
Poultry House Biosecurity Systems
High-level biosecurity measures are applied at the chick rearing facilities in order to ensure the healthy rearing of chicks.

EGG WEIGHING AND PACKAGING FACILITY
Burdan Eggs are transported from the cages in the production facility to the weighing and packaging facility over conveyor belts through indoor tunnels without being affected by the external environment.
Separation of Dirty – Cracked Eggs
Burdan Eggs which are transported to the full-automatic sorting and packaging machine over the conveyor belts, are first subject to separation by the dirty-cracked egg detector and then they go through a UV system which eliminates harmful microorganisms on the outer surface of eggs.
Egg shells are of a permeable structure. The microorganisms which form on the outer surface of the egg penetrates the shell and reduces its life and causes it to spoil faster. UV process which is applied to all eggs at Burdan Yumurta egg production facilities, eliminates all harmful microorganisms on the egg thus enhances the quality of the egg and extends its shelf life.
UV process, which is applied to all eggs at the production, eliminates harmful microorganisms on Burdan Eggs. Eggs which are free from harmful microorganisms continue to the weighing section. Here the eggs are weighed individually with 0,01 gr precision, untouched by human hands. The eggs are sorted according to their weights.
Today, it is possible to collect 120.000 eggs/hour with the sorting machine at Burdan Yumurta egg production facilities, which operate with cutting edge technology used worldwide. Sorting machine which sorts eggs according to their weights can prepare 6-egg, 10-egg, 15-egg and 30-egg packages. Thanks to these machines which carry out sorting and weighing, it is possible to carry out packaging in line with the weighing range set out by the relevant legislation.
The ID numbers of poultry houses are written on the sorted Burdan Eggs before packaging. Later, production date, expiry date and batch number are written on the package and thus all products are identified. Burdan Egg, which prioritizes product tracing system, customer satisfaction and food safety, thus ensures the traceability of its products.
