The production of eggs for consumption ensures a turnover of 8.6 billion MAD according to figures released Tuesday by the National Association of Producers of eggs for consumption (ANPO). On National Egg Day, the focus was on national production. In total, Morocco produced 6.6 billion eggs in 2018, including 5.8 billion units produced by the modern sector. This production covers 100% of the demand, assure the professionals.
As for egg consumption, it increased between 2010 and 2018, from 138 to 185 units per year. However, this figure remains low compared to that found in several countries, says the ANPO. It should be noted that the sector has 23,000 direct jobs and nearly 34,000 indirect jobs in marketing and distribution channels.
