Friday 14 October is your chance to raise the profile of British poultry farmers by celebrating World Egg Day. Find out how you can get involved and pay tribute to the versatility of the simple egg. 

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

One way to help raise the profile of British poultry farmers and promote the nutritional benefits of the humble, tasty egg is to get involved in World Egg Day on the 14 October. This year’s theme is ‘eggs for a better life’ and aims to celebrate all the potential eggs have to offer, not just nutritionally but also for planetary health and people’s livelihoods too.

Last year thousands of NFU members and members of the public took to social media on World Egg Day to promote the benefits of eating eggs and we want to make this year's celebration bigger and better. The NFU will once again be supporting this year's World Egg Day on Friday 14 October by asking members to share their story of how they produce high quality British eggs. 

“When I was re-elected as the vice chair of the NFU’s national poultry board in March 2022 I said that British poultry production is among the best and most sustainable in the world and I am keen to continue sharing that story with the public.”
