Egg Industry Welcomes Egg Ban Reversal

The British Egg Industry Council has welcomed the reversal of the House of Commons ban on the use of fresh eggs.

BEIC Chairman, Andrew Joret, said: “This is a victory for common sense. We said at the time that the ban on fresh eggs was without foundation and absolutely ridiculous and we are grateful that Sir Robert Rogers has recognised that. It’s also great news that the House of Commons will be sourcing British egg products rather than importing from Holland.”

“We’re very pleased that MPs will now be able to enjoy scrambled eggs, safe in the knowledge that they are produced in accordance to the world-leading food safety standards of the British Lion mark.”
