Interovo Egg Group BV – one of Europe’s leading producers of eggs and egg products – focuses on quality, innovation and flexibility. The company believes this process begins with the raw materials used to produce the hen feed and only ends when its products have been delivered to the customer.
Most of its production, with approximately 10 million layers, is integrated. To further improve its production processes and increase digitization, Interovo has partnered with intelligent data management software company, Evonik Porphyrio®. This arrangement allows Interovo to optimize performance, efficiency, and welfare, by providing its employees with the required tools to accurately monitor, control and manage the process in a more efficient way.
Using Porphyrio® also allows Interovo to benchmark its farming activities across Europe – Netherlands (HQ), Germany, France, Austria, Spain and Poland – and with the wider market (using the Porphyrio® Benchmark Module) and to make appropriate changes.
Jasper Van Loon, General Manager, Interovo, said: “With our processing facilities completely digitalized, we are ready to enter the era of Precision Livestock Farming together with Evonik Porphyrio®. Its strong expertise in data collection and analytics will enable us to further optimize our egg production. Working with the Porphyrio® system allows us to standardize and optimize management of our farming activities. We can also benchmark our farms, both amongst each other and with the market. We were impressed with the evolution of Porphyrio®, and the system completely fits our needs. This is also a signal to our customers that we are focused on producing top quality eggs according to the highest production and welfare standards.”
Kristof Mertens, Managing Director, Evonik Porphyrio, said: “We are very pleased to be working with Interovo. Our aim is to enable our customers to take advantage of the multitude of possibilities provided by the Cloud, Internet of Things and Big Data analytics. With our cloud-based and scientifically justified solutions, we enable each customer to optimize their business, online and in real-time. As such, our customers can take better strategic decisions based on short-term and long-term predictions of the production process and market. We look forward to being part of Interovo’s development, helping it to maintain its quality standards in innovative and flexible ways.”
