record egg sales in Australia

Australian egg farmers responded to fast growing domestic demand with the record breaking production of 6.2 billion eggs in the 2017-18 financial year. Statistics from Australian Eggs also show average consumption in Australia has risen to 245 eggs per person per year. Australian Eggs says the long term trend of increasing free range demand has continued with the proportion of free range supermarket volume increased to 45%, which for the first time was just above cage egg sales at 44%. But, of course, the eggs in supermarkets are not really free range – they are just labelled to maximise profits for corporate producers. Our eBook and webinars will help to boost the number of genuine free range farms to better meet demand.
