Eggs have a vital role to play in feeding people around the world, in both developed and developing countries. They are an excellent, affordable source of high quality protein, with the potential to feed the world. World Egg Day has been celebrated the world over from Vietnam to Mozambique, from Switzerland to Argentina, and throughout the U.S.
