World Environment Day!Every year, on June 5th, we celebrate World Environment Day!
We want to take this opportunity to highlight the beneficial impact of the protagonists of our sector: Eggs!
Eggs are well known for containing lots of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants making them one of the most high-quality and nutritious food sources. Not everyone knows that eggs are also environmentally friendly:
• Eggs are the proteins source with the lower water consumption
• Egg production creates fewer greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per gram of protein than many other popular protein sources.
• Eggs create minimal kitchen waste, every part of the egg can be consumed by humans, except for the shell, which can be used to create nutrient soil for plants.
