Mass Update on Laravel 5 Collection

I am working on a project where I will need to get at least 1 lac data from SQL table (the data is a 6 digit code indexed on the table), export them into a CSV file and run an update query to update their status.

The export time takes only seconds but because of the update queries it’s taking a long time. I am looking for an efficient way to do this task.

Here’s my code:

    $filename = 'sample.csv';
    $handle = fopen($filename, 'w+');

    $collection = Code::select('code')->where('status', 0)->take($request->quantity)->get();

    foreach ($collection->chunk(500) as $codes) {
        foreach ($codes as $code) {
            fputcsv($handle, [
              // this update query making the whole process taking long time
              Code::where('code', $code->code)->update(['status' => 1]); 


I am looking for a better way to update those data. Any suggestions?
