New York, NY – New York developer Joseph G. DeCousins has revealed plans for a new “egg factory” that will be built on top of an existing industrial building.
Mr DeCosins, who has worked in New York’s manufacturing industry for more than 30 years, announced the plans on Friday at the New York Economic Club.
Mr deCousens said the factory would be the first in the US to use the egg industry’s “gold standard” of a high-tech manufacturing process, which will result in more than 200,000 eggs a day.
Mr Trump’s decision to withdraw from the TPP prompted a number of companies in New England to look at options for their eggs, including DeCusins, which is the largest egg producer in the state.
Mr Donald Trump is now the US president and Mr Trump has announced his intention to withdraw the US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the trade deal that would have ended the US’ trade relations with 12 Pacific Rim countries.
The US and the 12 countries negotiated the deal in the hopes of curbing China’s economic dominance in Asia.
While Mr Trump’s withdrawal from the agreement will have a ripple effect on the world’s eggs industry, it is unclear if it will affect the current egg production in New Zealand, which exports around 80,000 tonnes a year.
The New Zealand Egg Board has said it is still committed to producing eggs in New South Wales and Queensland, which produce around 70 per cent of the country’s eggs.
