59th Egg Fair in Bastos Celebrates the Industry
The Bastos Egg Fair, in its 59th show, took place from July 12-14 and received thousands of visitors. Dekalb’s distribution team were actively present to meet with members of the industry.
Bastos, a Brazilian city in the western region of the state of São Paulo, was founded in 1928 by the Japanese government to receive envoys of Japanese immigrants. This small town, with a little more than 20 thousand inhabitants, has the largest flock of laying hens in the country with 28 million egg layers. With 22 million in production, they produce 216 eggs per second. Together 70 companies serve about 20% of the national egg production. This has caused the region to become known as the "Brazilian Capital of the Egg". Along with a number of cultural events and networking opportunities, the citizens of Bastos celebrated 90 years of the city's history with an outdoor concert.
Our team enjoyed meeting with new and existing members of the industry to discuss our products and services and how they can help our clients succeed.
