We are proud of our products because of the high quality. In the Danæg concern, we deliver eggs to consumers as well as the food industry and the food service market.
Danæg has always been a market leader when it comes to high quality and food safety. We consider it our natural responsibility to be at the forefront with regard to the company’s social responsibility, CSR – Corporate Social Responsibility.
To us, CSR is an expression of commitment and respect towards the society in which we play an active part, and we believe that we – through small and large actions in the daily work – can contribute to making a positive difference.
A SAFE AND SECURE WORKPLACE
Danæg must be a good, exciting, safe and secure workplace for all our employees. This requires a healthy and good working environment every day. To us, working environment means many things; it could be minimizing heavy lifts by using robots and providing proper ventilation and a pleasant indoor climate. And teaching employees how to handle various functions to avoid doing the same job every day.
Involvement of Employees
We encourage our employees to express their ideas and opinions in an open dialogue, both in the work and during employee evaluations. And we make sure to follow up on every wish for change, improvements and training. In the daily work – and in connection with extensions, rebuilding and installation of new machinery - we are very focused on job safety.
Good working conditions
We believe that a positive work environment is crucial for a low rate of absence. In case of sickness, all employees are covered by a health care scheme including extended medical care at the hospital as well as counselling. If an employee is absent due to long-term sickness, we do all we can to clarify if we can do anything to help from Danægs’s side. It is our goal to have a well-functioning workplace where all employees are thriving, well and working effectively.
DANÆG HELPS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

IMPROVEMENT PLAN FOR ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE
Danæg is highly committed to implementing energy savings and protecting the environment. Our goal is to minimize waste, energy consumption and use of other resources such as water and cleaning agents. As part of our improvement plan, we use tools such as:
• Choice of local and national suppliers and co-operative partners.
• Environmental requirements to suppliers and distributors.
• Focus on optimizing transportation and logistics – both when collecting eggs from the local producers and when transporting finished products to the customers.
• Focus on energy savings and environmental friendly technology.
• Recycle packaging: A large number of the egg trays used are made of recycle material.
• Increased focus on self-producing feedstuffs and participation in research developments which support this project.
• Recycling of the 1,000 tons egg shells which we produce annually. They are used as an ingredient in compost piles for private customer and in gardening.
