The egg farm makes use of block chain technology that facilitates traceability of their eggs from the farm to the end consumer. This technology allows tracking of the eggs at every stage of the supply chain, ensuring transparency and accountability. Consumers can access this information through a QR code on the pack, and get details such as the location of the farm, the date the egg was laid and the processing and transportation history of the egg.
The eggs after being collected from the OVO Farm, undergo a series of processing steps to ensure their quality and freshness like Freshness Test, Shell Strength Test, Candling, Cleaning, and Grading. Quality assurance is ensured in every step as OVO Farm uses specialized packaging that is designed to protect the eggs during transit and maintain their freshness. The logistics of transporting the eggs from the farm to the final destination also involves careful planning.
OVO farm has expertise in egg farming with two decades of experience in high quality egg production. Currently the farm produces one million eggs every day in their three units located in Balangir. The farm is now a source of livelihood to as many as 250 employees.
Apart from the exclusive store, the KENKO products are available to consumers in Bhubaneswar and Kolkata through a wide network of retail shops like general trade retail units and modern trade store in both cities. Additionally, the products are also available through ecommerce platforms, where consumers can order the products online.
