Thanks to agricultural development subsidies, Hungary can become self-sufficient from eggs, the State Secretary for Agriculture and Rural Development of the Ministry of Agriculture (AM) said at the press conference of this year’s campaign to encourage egg consumption in Budapest.

We can be self-sufficient from eggs

Feldman Zsolt explained that 15-16 percent of the domestic egg demand is still covered by imports. So it makes sense to promote Hungarian goods despite the fact that the output of local producers has increased significantly in the last decade, he added. There are 550 farms in Hungary that produce eggs, so they serve as the livelihood of many thousands of people, so that consumers can now choose local goods on the basis of a clearly visible designation of origin. A shorter supply chain is in everyone’s interest, as it is safer and more sustainable, he stressed. (MTI)
