From the 11th to the 14th of July, Bastos, the egg capital in Brazil, organized the famous egg festival. The Egg Quality Contest 2018 was even more competitive, with high-quality eggs, evaluated throughout the afternoon of July 11 by a judging committee made up of 18 judges, representatives of the different areas of the Brazilian-based poultry sector.
