The Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives will organize the World Egg Day for the first time in Thailand to encourage Thai people to eat chicken eggs according to sex and age. The event is scheduled for 10-14 October in Bangkok.
Inspector of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives Nirandon Euangtrakunsuk said the Livestock Development Department cooperated with egg farmers and vendors in arranging the World Egg Day. The event was inspired by the Egg Board’s goal to increase the national egg consumption from 200 eggs/person to 300 eggs/person by the year 2018.
The total amount of eggs in the market is expected to be 39.2 million in October, higher than the current amount of 38.8 million. It is therefore necessary for the ministry to increase the national egg consumption so that it is in balance with the increasing egg supply.
The World Egg Day event will take place next month at Siam Square One under the theme “Thai children love eggs.” There will be an exhibition on eggs and egg giveaways. Copies of the “Sun Egg” recipe by Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn will be handed out to the event’s participants.
