The Central Egg Agency (CEA) will celebrate its 35th anniversary in March, and has planned a dinner with entertainment following its annual general meeting.

Taking place on 2 March at the St John’s Hotel in Solihull, West Midlands, the meeting will be followed by an open forum discussion giving members and non-members a chance to voice their opinions.

The CEA brokers deals between those with a surplus of egg and those who have a shortage, explained chairman Andrew Hignet (pictured). “It offers membership to any individual or company involved in the production or marketing of egg. For an annual fee and a commission on any trade, it can organise the exchange and guarantee payment.”

Gareth Griffiths, of Oaklands Farm Eggs, is a director at the CEA and believes the agency “should always be the first call for producers to sell or buy uncommitted eggs”.

The meeting starts at 3pm, and the anniversary dinner will follow at 7pm. The dinner will cost £48 and non-members are welcome. Contact the CEA on info@centralegg.com for more details.
