But if it seem out of reach, hiring a delivery van might be a god alternative. The main reason you need your own transport is because, most shop owners might feel reluctant to go directly to the farm for eggs. If you can solve that problem by delivering directly to the shop, then you won’t suffer from competition. They will always call when they need more supply.

Crates

This can be paper or plastic crates. however, have in mind that you’re likely to get a cracked egg from plastic crates than paper. But when it comes to durability, plastic tend to last longer.

A Storehouse/Outlet

Demand for eggs fluctuates. Sometimes you end up buying more eggs than is eventually sold. There comes the need for an egg storage facility. The egg supply outlet should be strategically positioned as this will give
your egg marketing business the needed exposure. Don’t underestimate the place of personal relationship and referrals to the success of the business. Keep yourself busy and be productive.
