United Voice for Egg Farming
UEP and its farmer-members believe in consumers’ right to choose among a variety of healthy, affordable eggs. Today, U.S. egg farmers produce eggs and raise hens in diverse management systems to meet the expectations of their customers and consumers. Along with conventional and specialty shell eggs, UEP members also provide liquid, dried and other further processed egg products to the retail, food service and food manufacturing sectors.
UEP nurtures the important role of eggs as an abundant, affordable, wholesome food. This role is expanding with the current U.S. population of more than 320 million and the world population projected to grow to nine billion by 2040. As egg farmers work diligently to provide an important protein source, they understand their responsibility to exceed expectations in food safety, animal care and environmental stewardship. For five decades UEP has been – and will continue to be – the unified and proactive voice of America’s egg farmers.
