Australian egg producer, Sunny Queen, has officially opened its new “world-first” production facility located in Carole Park, Queensland.

The production facility, and new head office, was built to help manufacture Sunny Queen’s ‘Meal Solutions’ range which offers egg-based products for food service providers.

Sunny Queen’s facility is able to produce ready to serve egg dishes that are fully cooked or pasteurised, then snap frozen.

Managing Director of Sunny Queen Australia, John O’Hara, said the AUD $40 million plus plant is the only one of its kind able to produce 1, 100 tonnes of product per annum for delivery Australia wide.

“This 2, 200 square metre facility is a testament to all the staff who work here and the commitment to research and development with the help of the Queensland government,” O’Hara said.

Sunny Queens was the first Australian egg company to launch nationally across Australia and exports its eggs and Meal Solutions products to Hon Kong, Macau and the Middle East.

O’Hara said the facility was years in the making and is “unmatched by any of our competitors around the world”.

“This has seen our business flourish not only here in Australia, but to export markets who look to us to deliver good quality, tasty, safe and nutritious options to the food service market,” he said.
