WORLD Egg Day is celebrated around the world and helps to raise awareness of the benefits of eggs and their importance in human nutrition.
What is World Egg Day?
World Egg Day was established at the International Egg Commission Vienna 1996 conference when it was decided to celebrate World Egg Day on the second Friday in October each year. For centuries, eggs have played a major role in feeding families around the globe. They are an unbeatable package when it comes to versatility and top-quality protein at a very affordable price.
And they are also an excellent source of choline, essential in memory and brain development. When you factor in convenience and terrific taste, there is just no competition. Eggs are one of nature’s highest-quality sources of protein, and indeed contain many of the key ingredients for life. The proteins contained within eggs are highly important in the development of the brain and muscles, have a key role to play in disease prevention and contribute to general wellbeing.
Make sure your egg organisation, egg producers and allied industry members take advantage of World Egg Day. The promotional possibilities are as endless as your imagination, however, to help you get started, make use of the downloads at internationalegg.com including promotional ideas.
