Response on the different ways that we could increase demand for eggs, other than increasing availability and reducing price? What are some examples of successful initiatives?

1. Increase public awareness of the nutrition benefits of eggs. If more people know the nutrition benefits of eggs, the likelihood of consuming eggs are higher.

2. Promote consumption of egg-based dishes/meals; in Uganda, the government is promoting consumption of the "Rolex" which is basically an egg omelet wrapped in a chapati as part of the food tourism. This is indirectly increasing egg consumption
