How many fresh eggs does Mawson station need for a long winter? The answer is thousands!
We haven’t started counting yet… but during resupply teams of expeditioners restocked our freezers and cold stores full to the brim with an amazing selection of food. Amongst the mix we have thousands of fresh eggs, 180 kilograms of bacon, 144 kilograms of green peas, dozens of boxes of gourmet sausages, 50 kilograms of Tasmanian salmon and 96 jars of Tasmanian liquid gold honey. One of our Green Store walls is also filled with calorie rich chocolate (for our field trips of course…).We have lobsters, oysters and quails for special occasions – and for those very special occasions our chef Benny even brought gold leaf to Antarctica!
