Continued: Land O'Lakes looks to sell its egg operations

While Land O’Lakes is moving out of egg production, it will still be a player in eggs through its two-year-old joint venture with Eggland’s Best, a cooperative comprised of several egg producers.

Eggland’s Best boasts a superior — and more expensive — egg, with increased nutrient levels and better health properties than most eggs. Eggs marketed under the Eggland’s Best brand are laid by hens fed a special diet.

The company is part of the “specialty” egg category, a sweet spot in the egg business that also includes eggs from free-range hens, birds that aren’t kept in traditional wire cages.
