150 YEARS OF EX­PORT­ING

NZ Business - - THE INTERVIEW -

New Zealand has a proud his­tory of ex­port­ing eggs. FRENZ's Rob Darby says that as far back as 150 years ago eggs were shipped to Eng­land along with flax and tim­ber, mainly be­cause in Eng­land the hens stopped lay­ing in the win­ter. The New Zealand eggs would be cov­ered in duck fat to pre­vent them breath­ing and, af­ter the three or four month ship jour­ney, “fresh” New Zealand eggs would be grac­ing English din­ing ta­bles.
