    I joined the IEC to meet like minded colleagues who had a passion for the egg market. A network of friends who face similar but differing challenges within the business of egg marketing, production and processing. The IEC is a worldwide group of friends who are always ready to help each other.

    I have found members of the IEC community to be very generous with their time and knowledge. I have made many valuable friends from all around the world. By attending the IEC conferences, I am kept up to date with the latest developments in nutrition, optimal farming methods and marketing concepts. Being part of the IEC has given me the confidence to grow my business and I feel very fortunate to be part of the friendship that is the IEC family.

    In addition, the IEC enables me to learn more about marketing issues in the egg industry and gives me an idea of where the market is moving in the long run.
