MeiBox – the re-usable egg box

A smart and clever solution to avoid single-use packaging waste

Buy it once, use it again and again

Fill up the MeiBox and pay for it at the check-out of your food store.

Take your MeiBox with you next time you go shopping, fill it up and just pay for the eggs.

The MeiBox is a multi-use way of buying, transporting, storing and boiling eggs. The packaging concept has been specially designed to prevent single-use packaging waste. This smart idea was developed by Christoph Hönig from the Hönig-Hof farm in Germany, and features a plastic box that has two removable inserts that can each hold four eggs. Even the name is fitting – it’s pronounced “My Box”, as in my multi-use egg box. A little box that will go a long way to help the environment.

Where can you buy the MeiBox?

MeiBox can be found in over 10,000 of the best supermarkets and organic stores in Germany, France, Italy and Austria, including Alnatura, Edeka, Rewe, Migros, Biocoop, Bio Company, Marktkauf, Merkur, Naturata, Naturkost and Superbiomarkt as well as farmers’ markets and many other stores. Ask your supermarket or organic store to stock the MeiBox re-usable egg box if they do not already do so. 

Supermarkets and organic stores are always looking for ways to reduce the single-use packaging waste created by food produce, and the MeiBox is the perfect solution for this. Once you have bought it, simply take your MeiBox with you next time you go shopping and fill it up with individual locally-produced eggs. You will be playing your part in avoiding single-use packaging and making an active contribution to protecting the environment.

... and many other stores besides.

Which eggs go into your MeiBox?

Produce local, eat local is the Hönig Hof farm motto to enable the consumer to enjoy fresh eggs produced in the region. Hönig Hof works in close collaboration with a number of other egg farms to achieve this.

Hönig Hof and other agricultural producers in the Baden-Württemberg area of Germany are involved in a special project entitled Huhn-und-Hahn-Initiative (the Chicken and the Egg Initiative) which helps with the breeding of male chicks at hen farms.
