If you’ve ever been fortunate enough to wander the aisles of a grocery store overseas, you may have been puzzled by the fact that eggs are stored out in the open, far away from the cooling power of the perimeter refrigeration systems. This was very alarming to me the first time I witnessed it - yet it’s a completely commonplace and well-accepted practice in most other countries. But why?
