Sept. 21, 2012 – Customers in B.C. that head over the border and buy eggs are costing the B.C. economy millions of dollars in lost revenue.

According to Global Television in B.C., around two million eggs are brough in from the U.S. every year and the B.C. Egg Marketing Board estimates a $3.1 million loss to the gross domestic product of the province.

Therefore, the board is launching a campaign entitled “Eggonomics” to educate consumers about purchasing staple foods in another country.
