Control of the value chain: from farms to the manufacture of egg-based products

Eureden is active along the entire value chain (food production, pullet and egg production, laying hens, shell egg packaging, and prepared egg product manufacturing and marketing), allowing us to guarantee the quality and traceability of all our products, from shell eggs to egg products.

The Eureden Egg branch has 230 farmers, 7.4 million laying hens and 6 production sites, which process and package 31,000 tonnes of eggs, 80% fresh and 20% frozen.

We promote the products of our co-operative farmers, in particular via our Cocotine brand, a reference in the food service industry, and Paysan Breton, which has been present in the egg section of supermarkets since January 2022.

Sustainability of the value chain: manufacturing sites in France

The eggs produced by our co-operative farmers are packaged via the Ferme de Kervenac’h packaging centre for large retailers, or processed by PEP’s manufacturing sites and new egg breaking plant, which contribute to the economic development of the region. Eureden’s egg marketing division handles sales to a varied clientele (food service, egg product manufacturers, packaging centres, export, etc.).

Paysan Breton enters the egg section

The Paysan Breton co-operative brand, which is already present in the dairy, pancake and frozen food sections, emerged in the egg section in January 2022 with a range of eggs from its Breton co-operative farmers. The range consists of free-range eggs (code 1) available in two formats (by 6 and 12), and organic eggs (code 0), again available in two formats (by 6 and 10), all labelled “Oeufs de France” (“Eggs from France”). 

Cocotine: no. 1 in France for egg-based products

A trusted French origin co-operative brand

Through our Cocotine brand, we are a leading player in the field of cooked egg products (hard-boiled eggs, omelettes, poached eggs, fried eggs, whisked egg whites, etc.) and liquid egg products (whites, yolks, whole eggs) intended mainly for the food service industry.

With 220 products, Cocotine offers the widest range on the market and guarantees that most of its products are “eggs from France”. Through our Cocotine brand and its reputation (known among 50% of restaurant chefs), we want to make life easier for chefs and bakers with our 3 product categories: ready-to-cook (liquid egg products), ready-to-use (poached and hard-boiled eggs, etc.) and ready-to-serve (omelettes, fried eggs, etc.).

International development

After successfully differentiating itself from the competition thanks to a reinforced quality, traceability and innovation strategy, notably with a range dedicated to export adapted to both retail and food service, Cocotine has a presence in 27 countries, with 20% of its turnover in Europe and the Middle East.

Transition to alternative egg production

To its employees and 230 farmers in the producers’ group, Cocotine is a brand that unites people around strong values. For example, Cocotine has begun its transition to 100% alternative eggs by 2025.

Eureden supports farmers in finding the solution that’s best adapted the specificities of their farm. In parallel, for three years, we have been working with farmers to

define the particularities of the “animal welfare cage-free hens” breeding method based on 3 fundamental ideas: better remuneration for farmers, animal welfare that meets the expectations of consumers and customers, and positive communication on the breeding and production of cage-free hens.
