And the company is pioneering a new outlet, initially in Dumfries.
Egg vending machines could be a valuable area in the development of distribution services and Nith Valley Eggs are determined to be ahead of the game in Scotland the UK. Egg producers Scotland based and further afield should be looking to Nith Valley as they seem to be leading the way in terms of moving the industry forward.
The machines will allow a wider base of customers to have access to, and enjoy, the product.
They are very simple to use. Feed in the money and the door to a compartment swings open revealing a tray of thirty fresh, free range eggs. Each machine holds 28 trays and Nith Valley staff ensure that eggs are all fresh. There is a guarantee that from lay to machine will be no longer than a maximum 48 hours.
Boss Stuart Rutherford puts it this way: “We are always looking for new ways to get our eggs straight from the farm to the consumer and we are really excited to have our new innovative egg vending machines.
“In a sense we are taking our farm gate to the public and customers can be assured they are buying local eggs that are as fresh as possible.”
By the way, the machines are computer controlled and even send a text message alerting Nith Valley when there are only five trays left.
Our Egg Machines can be found at the following locations throughout Dumfries:
Newton Gardens Filling Station, Glasgow road
Border Cars Filling Station, Terregles street
McEwans Convenience store, 3 Auchencrieff road, Locharbriggs
