Corporate Social Responsibility

The IEC is committed to supporting the egg industry internationally. Working together we promote eggs and their health benefits across the world.


International Egg Nutrition Consortium

The International Egg Nutrition Consortium (IENC) was created to provide member countries with a vehicle for sharing health, nutrition, and research information and advice. Any country with membership of the International Egg Commission (IEC) is welcome to join the IENC. Membership to IENC is free of charge, and will allow country representatives access to all publicly available and password-protected materials on our website.


Crisis Communications

Technology has shortened the crisis response times from 24 hours to four minutes. Effective communication in times of crisis is now imperative not only to a single company or country to which the crisis applies, but to the whole industry.


Animal Welfare

One of the IEC's key aims is to encourage improvements for the welfare of laying hens. The IEC has an ongoing series of initiatives to provide leadership and continual progress in both developed and developing countries.


IEC Position Statements

As the global voice of the egg industry, the IEC has the responsibility to discuss industry issues as well to maintain links with other international organisations. The IEC is able to act as a communication link between industry and international regulators / decision makers, and therefore takes positions on a range of issues, once agreed by IEC members and approved by the IEC Council. For a full list of IEC Positions, please log-in to the Member Only section of the site.
