Eggs in Africa.

Eggs in Africa.

The egg industry is fragmented with a few major players and a number of small and medium-sized producers. 

African Egg Importers Mozambique was the main importers of South African eggs during 2011. It commanded 84% of South African eggs during 2011 followed at a distance by Angola accounting for 10%. Zimbabwe dropped from being the greatest importer (45%) of South African eggs in 2010 to being the second least importer with a share of 5% during 2011. Kenya had a share of 1% in the export market of South African eggs.

Grading Eggs in Africa.

Eggs are differentiated according to the production systems as follows.

Organic Free Range
These eggs are produced by free-range hens that are fed on grains and pulses that are grown without pesticides, chemical fertilisers or any other genetically engineered products. Omega 3-enriched
Omega 3 fats, which are excellent for brain functioning, the immune and nervous systems and healthy hearts, are found in oily fish. The hens that lay these eggs are fed salmon oil as part of their diet. Omega 3-enriched eggs are not necessarily free range.

Free range
The chickens that lay these eggs are exposed to sunlight and grass pastures. They have room to scratch, flap and bath in the dust. Their diet is not necessarily vegetarian, it could include insects or fishmeal.

These eggs are produced by chickens that live inside, but are not kept in cages. Barn eggs are laid by chickens that are fed a vegetarian diet of grains and pulses. 

Grain fed
Grain-fed chickens don't eat commercial feed, which can include fish and chicken meal. These eggs are not free range, and not necessarily barn. The chickens may be kept in cages. 

These are the cheapest eggs to buy, and so make up the bulk of the eggs consumed in the country. The chickens are kept inside, in cages. They are fed with meal, which includes commercially farmed grains and pulses and processed fish and/or chicken meal. Electric lights are kept on much of the time to encourage the chickens to lay.

Africa is surrounded by water but is not an island, here are a few African Island facts.

Madagascar is the 4th large island in the world and is located in the Indian Ocean supporting a unique biology, about 90% of its plants and animals are found nowhere else on earth.

Composed of 155 islands, Seychelles is Africa's smallest country. By far the largest island is Mahe, home to about 90% of the population and the site of its capital city of Victoria.

Cabo Verde has a strategic location 310 miles or 500 km from the west coast of Africa near major north-south sea routes; important communications station; important sea and air refueling site.

Africa is surrounded by water but by definition Africa is not an island because Africa is a continent. Continents can not be considered islands because of their size and also by historic definition since many people who study geography define islands and continents as two different things.
