    Clarity on whether those eggs are from where you think they are

    Clarity on whether those eggs are from where you think they are


    The Egg Producers Federation has brought in a traceability programme that will stamp a code on each egg so you can look online to see where they came from.

    And although the stamping programme is voluntary, more than 70 percent of those involved in egg production have signed up.

    Federation executive director Michael Brooks says it's what consumers want.

    He says with these eggs not stamped, they're not saying they can't be trusted they just won't have the layers of authenticity and independent verification.

    Brooks expects more egg producers will sign up as the scheme progresses.
