EGG PRODUCTION IN AUSTRIA
The supermarket chains REWE (Billa, Merkur, Penny), Spar, and Hofer – all three being members of Donau Soja Association – sell more than 350 million eggs per year. Since November 2013, these eggs come from hens which have been fed exclusively on European soya. Hence, more than 3,400 Austrian supermarkets are offering Donau Soja certified eggs and are thereby contributing to the promotion of the European agriculture and reduction of CO2 emissions.
In addition, numerous direct marketers in Austria offer certified Donau Soja eggs.
