In 1977, the poultry farm W. van Gemert was founded in Ospel by Wiel and Gemmie van Gemert. The first packing station was constructed and installed in 1983. The egg packing station used an ultra-modern Omnia sorting machine equipped with the latest technological gadgets to ensure that the sorted eggs were better, more appealing, and more safely processed than previously possible.
In 1996, Eierververij Ospel (EIVO, the egg dyeing facility in Ospel) was founded in collaboration with the Sieben brothers. EIVO is the largest industrial egg dyeing facility in the Netherlands. Four machines are spread over a hundred meters to boil, dye, dry, and package eggs at high speed. Following the successes in sorting, boiling, and dyeing eggs, Boiled Eggs Ospel (BEO) was founded in 2006. Here, with the aid of machines, eggs were boiled and peeled for wholesalers, caterers, food service companies, and producers of salads and sandwiches.
