Over our company’s history, families have relied on our top-quality eggs, including both our Norco Ranch brand. We continue to seek methods of improving our egg production, our packaging, and our farming practices, all in an effort to produce the very best farm-fresh eggs available.
Our Brands and Target Markets
Over our four decades in business, Norco Ranch Eggs has produced eggs that can be found throughout Southern California in our primary brand Norco Ranch. We also produce eggs for many of the most popular grocery store chain “house” brands, expanding our reach throughout our service region. We offer three classes of shell eggs:
- Conventional White Eggs
- Cage-Free White Eggs
- Organic Brown Eggs
Our locally-produced eggs have been enjoyed by families since the very beginning of our operations. Today, we proudly provide eggs to families as well as restaurants, food service facilities, retail grocery stores, and many other organizations. Norco Ranch Eggs relies on our quality as an integral part of our sales and marketing strategy: our reputation for the utmost in fresh, nutritious eggs speaks for itself.
The Highest Levels of Quality and Food Safety
Since the very beginning, Norco Ranch Eggs and our network of multi-generational family farms has adopted some of the most rigorous food safety and quality programs in the agricultural sector. We have implemented strategies and practices to ensure our eggs meet or exceed stringent standards. Our egg production practices are monitored and certified by numerous agricultural industry organizations, including:
- U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)
- Global Food Safety Initiative
- United Egg Producers
- Safe Quality Food Program
The Safe Quality Food Program has initiated standardization levels for agricultural food producers. Most grocery store chains only require their egg producers to meet Level Two standards under this program. Norco Ranch exceeds these standards and has achieved Level Three certification. We take pride in our multi-faceted approach to food safety, and have implemented these strictly-monitored controls to ensure our customers receive the freshest, most delicious eggs available.
Even our packaging practices have been streamlined to reduce waste. As environmental stewards, we employ minimal packaging for our eggs, and our packaging is both recycled and non-toxic.
A Cooperative Business Model: Supporting Local Farmers
In the day and age of large-scale commercial farming practices, local farmers are often overlooked in terms of the value they provide to the food service industry. Norco Ranch Eggs is different, embracing family-owned and operated farms in the Inland Empire and Southern regions of the state of California. Our cooperative business model allows us to work directly with our farmers, maximizing quality in every one of our carefully-developed production practices. In simple terms, our practices were developed for one goal: to produce the best eggs in Southern California.
Our network of farms are operated under a strict third-party animal welfare program, which includes regular monitoring to meet established standards. Our hens are the foundation of our business, and animal welfare is crucial to our success. Our hens are provided with clean water and nutritious feed and are raised in state-of-the-art facilities. Together with our cooperative network of local farmers, Norco Ranch has set the standard by which other egg producers operate.
