US - Beginning Tuesday, 16 April, the Egg Industry Center will host its fifth annual Egg Industry Issues Forum in St. Louis, Missouri, at the Hilton St. Louis Frontenac. This two-day event combines insightful presentations and open discussion of issues relevant to the success of the international egg industry.

Novus International, Inc., headquartered in St. Charles, Missouri, will be participating in this important event, hosting a reception and dinner featuring a keynote address, “Partners in Feeding the World,” from Novus’s President and CEO Thad Simons.

“The population continues to grow and so does the demand for food,” notes Mr Simons. “As a company with a vision to satisfy this increasing demand without straining, depleting or polluting the earth's natural resources, eggs offer the perfect solution. Eggs provide healthy, high-quality, nutritious and affordable protein to people around the globe. Of equal importance is the fact that eggs are also the world’s most sustainable source of protein.”

Novus’s unwavering commitment to promoting the benefits of eggs is evident in its association with several prominent and influential egg industry organizations and events, like the International Egg Commission and the Egg Industry Issues Forum. Novus also is an active participant in annual World Egg Day events around the globe. In October 2012, Novus hosted Howard Helmer, who currently holds the Guinness World Record as the fastest omelet maker, to participate in World Egg Day events in St. Louis. Helmer also was the “International Egg Person of the Year,” which is awarded to the most outstanding individual contribution to the International Egg Industry.
