State Minister for Fisheries and Livestock Narayan Chandra Chanda has said eggs and poultry meat are the cheaper source of protein in the country.
The minister was addressing as the chief guest at a discussion marking the World Egg Day, jointly organised by the Department of Livestock Services (DLS) and Bangladesh Poultry Industries Central Council (BPICC) at Krishibid Institution on Friday.
Chaired by BPICC president Moshiur Rahman, the programme also was attended by Fisheries and Livestock Secretary Maksudul Hasan as the special guest and Director General of the DLS Dr M Ainul Haq as the guest of honour.
International Egg Commission (IEC), an organisation that represents the global egg industries with members spanning 80 countries, at its conference in Vienna in 1996 was decided to celebrate World Egg Day on the second Friday in October each year.
For centuries, eggs have played a major role in feeding families around the globe. They are an unbeatable package when it comes to versatility and top-quality protein at a very affordable price.
