About IEC

The International Egg Commission is the global network for the egg industry. It has members in over 80 countries around the world. It was established at the second International Egg Conference in Bologna, Italy, in 1964.

The London, UK-based commission has a number of goals. Among these are the fostering of international cooperation among all sectors of the egg industry, encouraging the development of better statistics and market intelligence for shell eggs and egg products, and collecting and publishing such data, and encouraging the harmonization internationally of marketing standards for shell eggs and egg products.

The IEC in fact, is the only organization that represents the global egg industry. As the global voice of the egg industry, the IEC has the responsibility to discuss industry issues as well as to maintain links with other international organizations.

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.

IEC established International Egg Foundation (IEF) in 2014 to work as an independent charitable foundation.

The IEF’s goals are to help implement the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and increase egg production and egg consumption in underdeveloped countries to provide undernourished infants, children and families with an independent, sustainable, high-quality protein supply. To achieve these goals, the IEF works alongside the world’s largest and most effective charitable foundations and with the world’s largest egg businesses to help ensure high-quality protein is accessible to everybody no matter who they are or where they come from.
