This year’s British Egg Week, which runs from October 10, with promote the theme of “Put an Egg On It” as an encouragement to consumers to experiment with eating eggs in more unusual ways.
“It’s a perfect time to encourage customers to choose eggs, and the street food theme we’ve chosen gives us a great platform to highlight how suitable they are for modern lifestyles,” said British Egg Industry Council (BEIC) chairman, Andrew Joret (pictured above).
“Research shows that eggs are now seen by consumers as a healthy, nutrition packed and versatile food. Highlighting this on point of sale and menus is a great way to boost sales during the week, and longer term.”
