Egg Cartons – A Revolution in Egg Packaging and Transportation
Egg packaging goes back hundreds of years, but it was only in the early 20th century that the modern egg carton as we know it was invented. In 1911, a newspaper editor named Joseph Coyle invented a product called the Coyle Egg-Safety Carton in response to an argument between a farmer and a hotel owner in British Columbia, Canada. The argument stemmed from egg breakage during transport, and each participant blamed the other for the loss.
This invention by Mr. Coyle revolutionized the egg packaging industry. Today, modern egg carton products and other egg packaging solutions manufactured by EggBox look and perform very similarly to those original inventions.
Types of Egg Packaging
EggBox is the industry’s leading producer of high-quality egg packaging products, and our products can be found in use around the country. We produce four major types of egg packaging, including:
- Pulp Egg Cartons
- Foam Egg Cartons
- Egg Flats, Egg Sleeves, and Egg Crate Topper Products
- Egg Boxes
Egg cartons for sale by EggBox are generally made from two materials, paper pulp and foam. Other materials may be used, including paper and recycled paper. Pulp egg cartons are created by making a pulp “slurry” out of recycled paper and cardboard. This slurry is pumped into egg carton-shaped molds and allowed to dry. The result is an environmentally-friendly product that protects eggs during shipment and storage. By using recycled materials, the environment is protected from unnecessary tree harvesting. The best thing about pulp egg cartons is that they can be recycled again, creating new products!
Foam egg cartons are made using expanded plastic foam, usually polystyrene (they are often referred to as styrofoam egg cartons). The foam is pressed into molds and cooled, forming the familiar egg cartons we have all used in the home or food service industry. Foam egg cartons may be recyclable by certain operations, and the recycled foam can be added to concrete, plastic products, office supplies, and many other applications like home insulation. A benefit of foam over pulp egg cartons is that they provide an extra layer of insulation for the eggs, helping to regulate temperatures during shipment between producers and end users.
Egg flats and egg crate topper products can be made from both major materials, but traditionally, they are made from paper pulp. EggBox produces a wide range of egg flats and egg crate toppers in addition to egg sleeves in both materials.
