The chief executive of Stonegate, Adrian Gott, has praised the role of eggs on the 27th World Egg Day, on 14 October. This year’s theme is ‘eggs for a better life’.
Gott said this year more than before, eggs have a vital role in diets. “The cost-of-living crisis is putting immense pressure on the British public’s household budgets, which understandably puts undue strain on maintaining healthy diets. World Egg Day is a reminder of the central role eggs can play in delivering vital and affordable nutrition to millions across the UK.”
Eggs provide 13 essential vitamins and minerals including Vitamin A for eye health, Vitamin D for bone health, and choline for brain development, along with high-quality protein.
Earlier this year Stonegate launched a new range of eggs called ‘Enriched’. Gott said: “Our free-range hens enjoy a diet that is packed full of carefully selected nutrients, which they absorb and then transfer into their delicious eggs; delivering additional vitamins and minerals above and beyond what customers can already expect to receive.”
