This year’s BEIC marketing push has continued with campaigns highlighting that consumers can “make a meal in minutes” with eggs. 

But it also taps into the trend for “instafood”; posting pictures of healthy, photogenic recipes on social networking site Instagram. 

The hashtag #EggCentric has been adopted to allow users of the site – and others such as Twitter, Youtube and Facebook – to highlight their own creations. 

Andrew Jorêt, BEIC chairman, said: “The popularity of eggs continues to grow, with the #EggCentric campaign helping new audiences to wake up to their benefits.

“The latest phase of the campaign is helping to offer consumers new egg recipe inspiration, encouraging them to cook with eggs in the home by offering a range of interesting, quick and easy to follow meals.”
