Brazil recorded a gigantic egg production in 2022.
Data from the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) show that the national industry’s supply has broken annual records since the agency’s records began in 1997.
Last year, Brazil reached the production of 48 billion eggs.
According to the survey conducted by Revista Oeste with IBGE figures, the national industry keeps about 180 million laying hens for egg production.
On average, each hen lays around 270 eggs yearly.
Almost all of them are consumed in the domestic market.
Thus, the availability per inhabitant in Brazil is about 233 eggs . . .
