protein consumed by Mexicans, the possibility of adding
eggs as basic consumer goods is being considered.
César Quesada, chairman of the UNA's Board of
Directors, recently spoke with Segalmex Director Ignacio
Valle to explain the advantages of the poultry industry and
in particular the egg sector. Eggs do not require the same
rigorous temperature conditions for storage and transport as chicken. They are also much easier to transport,

The interest in integrating eggs into the country's basket
As for organic production, there is already a regulation
