Mexico leads world in per capita egg consumption

Average Mexican eats 438 annually

Mexico's National Poultry Institute (INA) announced that Mexicans consume the most eggs worldwide, according to reports. That’s an average of 438 eggs per year per person.

Lawmakers are fighting to exclude eggs from a proposed food tax arguing the product is an inexpensive and healthy protein source.

Mexico is expected to produce 2.35 million tons of eggs this year.
