Novus International Celebrated World Egg Day17 October 2014
US - Novus International celebrated World Egg Day last week with regional celebrations affirming the Company’s commitment to promoting nutrition globally.
Eggs are one of the most affordable and versatile foods available on the market. From boiled to poached, deviled and pickled to scrambled or sunny side up, there are more than 100 unique ways to prepare this wonderful source of protein.
In addition to being extremely versatile, consuming eggs has many health benefits. In only 70 calories, one large egg provides an impressive six grams of high-quality protein and at least 13 essential vitamins and minerals. Eggs are also an excellent source of choline, an essential nutrient that promotes fetal brain development, as well as helps prevent birth defects.
In celebration of eggs and all they are doing to support health and nutrition around the world, the International Egg Commission (IEC) has proclaimed the second Friday in October as World Egg Day, which fell on 10 October this year.
Novus, in partnership with the IEC, once again joined this annual celebration of eggs by hosting events worldwide. The celebration of World Egg Day aligns perfectly with Novus International’s vision to help feed the world affordable, wholesome food and achieve a higher quality of life. Each year, Novus offices around the world host regional events to celebrate World Egg Day. Among those efforts are events and activities to promote the nutritional benefits of eggs in six African countries, as well as additional educational outreach efforts in the United States, Thailand and India.
Ajay Bhoyar, senior manager of global poultry marketing at Novus, said: “Eggs are rich in protein and play an important role in healthy diets. World Egg Day provides the perfect platform to promote this important message.
“Egg producers play a key role in improving nutrition worldwide and each year we look forward to this opportunity. It is important to educate our communities and support our customers by providing sustainable solutions that support their operations.”
