Its own egg-laying farms: The Lodewyckx Group as a whole processes more than a billion eggs a year. To achieve these egg volumes the Lodewyckx group has agreed egg supplies with egg-laying farms. In addition, the group also has four of its own egg-laying farms across Flanders (Geel, Markegem, Sint-Laureins and Veerle). This enables the group to produce eggs according to specific demands in relation to the composition of the chicken feed.
