Traditional carton egg packaging

The traditional occidental egg carton was invented in 1911 by newspaper editor Joseph Coyle (British Columbia) to solve a dispute between a local farmer and hotel owner over the farmer's eggs often being delivered broken. Before this invention, eggs were carried in egg baskets. The egg carton "box" was further developed by H.G.Bennett (UK) during the 1950s and became the norm for egg transportation.

Here are some new ideas questionning standard egg packaging, only a few ones.
