„We are happy of having from now on the opportunity of buying fresh, natural eggs directly from the Beregsau farm. Is a very good thing for me and my kids and I’m happy it happened in our neighborhood. Until now we had to search to find real eggs, like the ones I was eating in my childhood. All the supermarkets are filled with low quality eggs imported from other countries, with foggy production and expiry dates. Hopefully extending this kind of healthy commerce to as many towns as possible, the leaches will be eliminated from the base food commerce and the money from our pockets will only reach the deserved target, that is the producer which takes all the hard work” declared Maria Antonescu, a customer interviewed near the egg vending machine.
