We believe sustainability should be fully integrated through every element of the egg industry and aspire to a global egg value chain that is environmentally sound, socially responsible, and economically viable.
Egg production is already one of the most environmentally-friendly forms of agricultural production, as hens convert feed into protein very efficiently and require a relatively small land base to do so. Nevertheless, we champion continuous development and improvement in sustainability across the global egg value chain through collaboration, knowledge sharing, sound science and leadership.
