World Egg Day 2021

Did you know, Australians consumed 6.3 BILLION eggs last year? That’s over 17.3 million eggs every day, according to data released by Australian Eggs. With these kind of numbers, there’s no doubt that eggs are one of Aussie’s favourite foods – and just one of the reasons to celebrate World Egg Day today, October 8th!
Eggs are a versatile, cost-effective, tasty and highly nutritious food enjoyed all over the world.  Dietitian and Director of Food & Nutrition Australia, Sharon Natoli, tells us that eggs provide 13 different vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, omega-3s and choline, and they’re a tasty source of high-quality protein. That’s pretty eggs-traordinary! (Sorry, couldn’t help ourselves)
“It’s a great day to celebrate Australia’s ongoing love of eggs” said Rowan McMonnies, Managing Director of Australian Eggs. “It has been a challenging year for Australian egg farmers, with COVID restrictions and snap lockdowns playing havoc with both production and opportunities for eggs via food service venues. To see egg consumption grow by more than 3 million this year, despite the challenges, is testament to Australia’s love of eating eggs.”
