Today is World Egg Day with residents on the Eyre Peninsula helping to increase consumption in Australia to more than 6 billion eggs each year.
The findings come off the back of research confirming the nutritional benefits of eggs and latest advice from the Heart Foundation lifting the daily limit on how many we can eat.
Managing Director of Australian Eggs, Rowan McMonnies, says a combination of affordability, nutrition and other factors is driving demand and local production.
Rowan says growth trend has continued, with figures indicating locals can expect to see them remain at an affordable and accessible source of protein, despite current and recent drought conditions across the country.
