Our Story

Working hard to make eggs easier for you, since 1985.

Success the Sunny Fresh® way

The Sunny Fresh legacy reaches back to The Wright Co., which started in the 1920s and focused on producing shell eggs in Monticello, Minnesota. In 1985, Wright joined the Cargill family under the Sunny Fresh Foods name. We sold our laying hens to change the focus from shell eggs to providing customer solutions with fully prepared eggs.

We partner with trusted family farms to source high quality eggs that we prepare at our four Midwest plants. Our business continues to grow, as more customers experience the value-added benefits of our products. In teaming with Sunny Fresh and Cargill, our customers can leverage our broad capabilities – and we can be a part of their unique success story!
