Friday 13 October is World Egg Day. This is your chance to raise the profile of British poultry farming and celebrate the humble egg.

The NFU Poultry Board is encouraging everyone to get involved and showcase the best of British poultry production.

World Egg Day is an excellent way to pay tribute and promote the simple egg. This year’s theme is ‘eggs for a healthy future’, celebrating all the nutritional value that eggs have, as well as their benefits towards global health and farming. World Egg Day will also be focusing on the versatility of eggs, and the different ways they can be added into diets.

Last year, World Egg Day was promoted globally across social media. NFU members and the public also got involved with the campaign, sharing the benefits of eating eggs and how they can improve your diet.

Once again, the NFU will be supporting this year’s World Egg Day on Friday 13 October, where they will be asking members to share their story on how they produce high quality British eggs – and how they enjoy eating them!

Share your poultry pride

Members can also download our selection of ready-made graphics and use them to share positive messages about the egg sector and make a cracking social media post. Alternatively, why not share your favourite egg dish on your social media? Don't forget to use the hashtag #WorldEggDay.

You can find out more about World Egg Day on the International Egg Commission's website.


“British poultry meat and eggs provide nutritious, versatile, and affordable sources of protein and are enjoyed by people of all ages. UK poultry farmers have worked hard through a multitude of challenges to ensure that they can provide a range of poultry products to British consumers."
