s the benefits of eggs
as a protein source in
the diet spread and the
economy recovers, egg
consumption is slowly rising in countries around the world.
Between 2015 and 2035, egg consumption is forecast by Rabobank
to rise 50 percent globally, with
much of the growth coming from
developing countries. As it sat in
2015, many of the eggs consumed
around the world were from layers housed in cages, from Mexico
to the U.S. to China (Figure 1).
However, this is slowly shifting as
consumers in many countries are
now calling for cage-free eggs.
