On 08.12.2011 by Chantel Arsenault

It has been a while since the last Friday's Friendly Fan so we decided to bring them back with a post on someone we are fan of. Safest Choice eggs is a huge fan of Dee Taylor, Safest Choice's Las Vegas food service broker. Dee runs her own brokerage called, Detail Food Service, which she started over 11 years ago. Detail Food Service is an extremely successful brokerage because of Dee's 30 years of industry experience, along with her business philosophy. The philosophy is that everyone gets their fair share of Dee and her team's amazing capabilities. So Detail Food Service limits the number of lines they carry to make sure they are equally represented. Dee began working with Safest Choice eggs in early 2007 Read More >

Remembering our Friend, Vagn >

On 07.07.2011 by Jay Berglind

Last weekend there was a memorial service for Vagn Forrisdahl. Vagn was one of the first employees of NPE and the first full-time sales person. He was only 62 when he died on April 25 from cancer, made doubly cruel as it seemed he would beat it. We all considered Vagn a great friend, but that does not adequately capture the energy, the humanity and the amusement he brought to everything he did, including his time at NPE. So it was fitting that he requested not a funeral but a party. It was lovely afternoon in a park by his home and the drinking and dancing  lasted far into the evening. Greg West, Mary Webb and I attended from the company. We have known his Read More >

Made Safer…Naturally >

Safest Choice™ pasteurizes shell eggs using a patented all-natural warm water bath process. The process starts with the arrival of clean, farm-fresh eggs. These come from pre-approved, family owned and operated, USDA certified and inspected farms. Next, carriers transport the eggs to our clean, warm water bath pasteurizer. The eggs continue through the bath at exact time and temperatures to assure accurate pasteurization. They are conveyed out of the bath and through an automatic waxing unit which applies a food grade wax over the egg shell. That acts as a seal to protect from absorption of any cross-contaminants that otherwise could pass through the egg shell’s thousands of open pores. Finally, the eggs receive a red Circle ‘P’ stamp identifying them as pasteurized using the Read More >
