Dairy & Eggs

   
Egg Distributor/Candler Requirements
 

It is a requirement under Title 37, Chapter 15, Idaho Code, Egg and Egg Products, and IDAPA 02.02.11 Rules Governing Egg and Egg Products to comply with the laws and rules if you are a distributor of egg and/or egg products or if you have 300 or more birds.

A distributor must renew his/her license yearly, and candlers must also renew their license yearly. In addition to a license, distributors are required to pay a monthly mill levy assessment of .004 per dozen.

If an individual has less than 300 birds, he/she can sell the eggs without complying with the requirements. However, the eggs must be clean and the container must be labeled with the individual's name, address, phone number, and the words "UNGRADED EGGS".
